The report, Doing Business 2017: Equal Opportunity for All, finds that Malaysia is one of 17 economies that implemented reforms in the East Asia and the Pacific region in the past year. The two reforms implemented in the past year included the strengthening of credit reporting by providing consumer credit scores.
