Let me put up a list here (does not claim to be exhaustive or complete).
Malaysian Exports and respective world rankings are for example:

1) Petrochemicals - mainly through Petronas / ranking unknown to me
2) Semiconductors - chips / World Number 1 (yes, before Taiwan !)
3) Palm Oil / World Number 1
4) Timber / World Number 2 (just behind Brasil)
5) Airconditioners / World Number 1
6) Tin / among top 5 worldwide

That's just a few, not including the biochemical industry presently growing in 2-digit rates year on year. Doesn't seem to me that Malaysia is a poor country (is it perceived as such ?), not forgetting the foreign exchange received through the Tourism industry ....

Coming back to the products above, I can't recall or find any particular branding for those, except Petronas spending quite some money in Formula 1 Smile

The statistics were given during a speech by the Prime Minister’s Year 2004 Budget speech, a mention was made that in the league of the world’s largest trading nations, Malaysia ranks number 17. Not sure how many actually do know this. Those data I posted earlier have been mentioned during the speech. But well, that was 2004.

A lot of additional statistical data can also be found here:

Indeed Aziz, Malaysia receives top world ranking in exporting... but i never heard Malaysia actually did much brand the product as Aziz said except Petronas.
We always have been known as a manufacturer country. If Malaysia wants to grow and develop, Malaysia have to produce its own product and brand, not just manufacture. That will be part of branding Malaysia.
Something to think about? Idea

Taken from online Standard Dinar Muslim Business Magazine http://www.dinarstandard.com/rankings/ds100/DS100Brands.htm

Arcelik, Vestel, Emirates, Ulker and Proton are amongst the strongest of these brands. Although none are represented in the Business Week/ InterBrand ranking of Top 100 Global brands, many have ventured beyond their domestic markets and are competing as regional and or global brands.
