ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRENDS IN MALAYSIA: A National Five Year Longitudinal Study Using GEM Methodology

The research is done using the GEM APS and NES surveys. Malaysia has participated every year since 2009 thus allowing for a longitudinal study (2009 – 2013).

It captures both formal and informal business activity measuring Malaysia’s aspirations, attitudes and activities.
