Media Partners


Business Times

Business Times was established in 1976 to meet the needs of the fast growing corporate sector which required a specialised vehicle for news on commerce and industry.
In an increasingly challenging global economy where products made in one country consist of a mix of inputs originating from different parts of the world, the need to keep in touch with developments that affect trade in Malaysia takes prime importance especially when changes take place at rapid pace.
The growing importance of trading blocs and the trend towards liberalisation of trade has also made each country inter-dependent. The inflow and outflow of investment funds also bears directly on the health of any economy.

Led by specialist writers, Business Times offers readers in-depth news and analysis of the world of business, government and investment activities locally and globally.

Business Times is published from Mondays to Saturdays. On June 1 2002, it was incorporated into the New Straits Times.
