MUS is an advisory and consultancy company set up in Malaysia to serve and assist international companies either intending or already operating in Malaysia. It is particularly suited to serve the American companies as reflected in the name MUS which represents a special link between Malaysia and the United States. A primary motivation for the name is to tap on the experience and leadership of the company’s founding Chairman, Dato’ Dr. Awang Adek Hussin, the most recent Malaysian Ambassador to the United States. Dr. Awang has vast experience and knowledge on the Malaysian economy and its business environment. He was formerly Deputy Minister of Finance of Malaysia and, prior to that, he spent 17 years at the Central Bank of Malaysia, the last 6 of which was as Assistant Governor. Dr. Awang is well versed with the political setting and working of the Malaysian Government as he has been in politics for the last 15 years, serving at different times as a Member of Parliament, a member of Malaysian Senate and a Member of the Supreme Council of UMNO, the ruling party in Malaysia.
Armed with a vast and rich experience, following his Ph.D in Economics from University of Pennsylvania (1984), Dr. Awang is now teaming up with a group of experts (including a former Cabinet Minister) to form MUS to help navigate American companies to facilitate their operations, overcome challenges and optimize their returns on investments. The far-reaching breadth and depth of our team’s expertise will place us in strategic position to advise our clients on a wide range of issues covering political developments, economic outlook, government policies and procedures, business opportunities as well as legal and taxation matters. In short, our Company provides an effective bridge between Malaysia and the United States for the American companies to feel very much at home operating in Malaysia.
