Some of them even took the further step of expanding their horizons and ventured abroad. Due to their extraordinary courage and vision, there are now many successful Malaysian businesses all over the world.
Globalisation is a journey full of challenges and risks, but the global Malaysian brands featured in this book, namely Khind Holdings Berhad, Lingham & Son (M) Sdn Bhd and Top Glove Corporation Berhad embraced it with strong determination and have eventually become international success stories!
