Malaysia has experienced tremendous economic success in the last three decades, transforming itself from a producer of raw materials in the 1970s into an emerging, multi-sector economy with an expected growth rate of 4.7% for 2015. It is expected to maintain this healthy pace in 2016 with a rate of  5.0%. This has led to a rise in per-capita income, resulting in a rapid increase in economic activity and an exponential increase in the demand for more infrastructure.
