Malaysia tops Asia’s investment in Africa

Malaysia is ahead of China in foreign direct investments in Africa, new data published by the United Nations shows.

A survey of foreign investment into and out of the five BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) published on March 25 revealed that China, which was considered to be the most active investor in Africa, is lagging behind the inflows from Kuala Lumpur, and the gap is widening.

Globally, Malaysia was the third biggest investor in Africa in 2011, the latest year for which data is available, behind France and the US, pushing China and India into fourth and fifth positions. In that year, Malaysia invested $19.3 billion in Africa as compared to China’s $16 billion and India’s $14 billion.

Around 24 per cent of Malaysia’s total foreign direct investments went to Africa in 2011. Most active Malaysian investors were Petronas and Sime Darby, countries targeted were, among others, South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Egypt and Mauritius.

Malaysian firms can be found operating in almost every sector from resource extraction to involvement in amusement and recreational activities. Investments in hotels and leisure, real estate, shipping, broadcasting, banking and financial services, palm oil plantations and refining, oil and gas and telecommunications demonstrate the sectoral diversity of Malaysian investments in Africa.

Memang agak mengejutkan bila terdengar berita ini, saya juga menyangka China adalah investor dari Asia terbesar di benua Africa,tertipu saya dengan laporan documentary Al-Jazeera beberapa tahun lalu tentang kegiatan investment China di sana yg amat rancak!.

rupanya ada negara yg diam2 berisi.....

dari Reuters,

Malaysia, not China, is Asia's top investor in Africa

GENEVA, March 25 | Mon Mar 25, 2013 1:00pm EDT

(Reuters)- Malaysia is ahead of China in terms of the size of its direct foreign investment (FDI) into Africa and the gap is widening, according to United Nations data published on Monday.

A survey of foreign investment into and out of the five BRICS countries, published on the eve of their summit in South Africa and while new Chinese President Xi Jinping visits the continent, revealed that China's march into Africa has lagged behind the flow of cash from Kuala Lumpur.

FDI, which includes crossborder mergers and acquisitions and investments in startup projects abroad, can give clues about economic confidence and future trade flows. For Malaysia, the big spenders in Africa include firms such as Petronas and Sime Darby.

Malaysia was the third biggest investor in Africa in 2011, the latest year for which data is available, behind France and the United States, pushing China and India into fourth and fifth positions.

France and the United States also have the largest historical stock of investments in Africa, with Britain in third place and Malaysia in fourth, followed by South Africa, China and India.


The other two BRICS - Russia and Brazil - have minimal direct investments in the continent, according to the data from the U.N. economic thinktank UNCTAD.

Malaysia's portfolio of global FDI more than quintupled over the past decade to reach $106 billion by the end of 2011. Of that,$19.3 billion was in Africa, more than the $16 billion of African investments owned by China and the $14 billion held by India.

The five BRICS have escalated their investments in Africa from almost nothing in the 2000-2002 to 4 percent of their outward FDI in 2009-2011, making Africa a much more important investment destination for them than it is for the European Union or the United States.

By contrast Malaysia sent 24 percent of its outward FDI to Africa in 2011, mainly to Mauritius in that year.

hahaha di afrika saja bangga. gak bisa lebih dr itu malon dongo?
harusnya beritanya yg bagus dong, mampu menjadi top investor di eropa, amerika, dan asia. ini hanya sebatas afrika, dan afrikanya pun bukan afrika yg maju seperti afrika selatan, mesir, dan negara2 di afrika utara lainnya. melainkan di negara afrika yg miskin.
kenapa lon ko cuman berani di negara afrika yg miskin bukan di negara afrika yg kayanya? dan kenapa takut berinvestasi di negara asia, eropa dan amerika? kalah bersaing ya.
hahahaha

kalo mau ikutin indonesia dong berani investasi disana sini. di afrika pun indonesia langsung menguasai lahan2 tambang dan perminyakan di negara2 afrika utara seperti libya, tunisia dll. nah malon malah kagak ada disana. gak ada uang ya malon tuk berinvestasi besar di negara yg tidak miskin dan tidak bodoh.

apa kaitan nya Indonesia dalam artikel ini?saya tidak nampak nama Indonesia dalam artikel ini...so apa kaitan nya??

risiko investment di benua afrika memang tinggi dan bila2 masa saja boleh terjadi penarikan FDI secara mengejut, tapi itu tidak bermakna kita harus takut untuk berinvestasi disana...
