However, we strongly agree with the saying that goes “if there is a will, there is a way,” many of the existing eateries have long been running, so if they can do it, the same goes for you as well.
Apart from the tourism aspect of Malaysia, this country is fairly well-known for its abundance in oil and gas resources, thus the number of oil and gas companies situated especially at the east costs of Malaysia such as Terengganu, Pahang, and Kelantan; one prominent example being ship preservation solutions in Malaysia. As a result, this has since grabbed the attention of many foreign investors to chip in their venture. With that, more job opportunities have since been given to locals. However, due to the pandemic, many operations have been pressured to be put on hold, but more and more sectors are slowly resuming their endeavors.
