Registration of Exporters with MATRADE
Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) was established since March 1, 1993 as the external trade promotion arm of Malaysia's Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). MATRADE functions as a focal point for Malaysian exporters and foreign importers to source for trade related information. By providing market research information and relevant advice, MATRADE assists Malaysian exporters to better position their products and services in the highly competitive global markets.
MATRADE, in its effort to reach out and to provide its services and assistance to more Malaysian exporters, effective from 1 September 2000, would not be imposing any fee for registration with MATRADE. There is also no need for annual renewal of registration. Companies are also required to keep MATRADE informed on changes to the companies’ particulars.
Companies registered with MATRADE will be able to benefit from the various services and assistance provided to Malaysia manufacturers and exporters, such as business matching, updates on MATRADE’s trade promotional programmes and market information from MATRADE’s overseas network, listing on MATRADE’s website and directories, participation in trade missions, international trade fairs and export training programmes, display of samples in the Malaysia Export Exhibition Centre and Trade Offices abroad, notification on trade leads and international tenders and use of MATRADE’s Business Library.

Online registration can also be done through MATRADE’s website at http://www.matrade.gov.my.
