KUALA LUMPUR: Chinese investments into Malaysia halved to US$1.7bil in the first nine months of the year from a year ago, though US investments soared seven times to US$5.9bil - reflecting a diversion of funds due to the Beijing-Washington trade clashes.

Data provided by the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) to Reuters on Friday showed that China, traditionally the Southeast Asian country's biggest investor, has now slipped to third position behind the United States and Japan.


Foreign direct investment (FDI) from Japan, with whom Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is trying to strengthen ties, jumped more than four times to RM11.81bil (US$2.83bil) in the January-September period.

Total approved FDI into Malaysia rose 6.5% to US$66.3bil, MIDA said, adding it was "actively negotiating" on 682 other projects with proposed investments of RM37.6bil.



Trade hostilities between the world's biggest two economies have pushed mostly U.S. companies to look for factories outside China to escape tit-for-tat tariffs.

For Malaysia, the biggest investments have come in the electrical and electronics industry, with one of the driving factors being that many semiconductor and other electronics products from the country do not attract U.S. tariffs, unlikethe 25% rate for China.
