The nations of Southeast Asia and the Gulf continue to build economic, social, and investment ties, especially due to the presence of Muslim culture embedded in both regions. Over the past few years trade between Malaysia and Qatar has increased. Malaysia and Qatar have announced a $2 billion joint investment fund that will target opportunities in both countries and bordered states. Each country will contribute around a billion into the joint fund. The prime ministers of both countries signed letters of intent on cooperation agreements in the areas of high education and tourism.

Malaysia is actively trying to increase foreign direct investment and diversify their economy. The nation has transformed itself from a raw material country to a nation with manufacturing, services, and Islamic finance. In fact, the Government of Malaysia has created economic incentive programs to develop targeted regions such as the Kuala Lumpur International Financial District (KLIFD). The KLIFD wants to be the hub for the Islamic finance industry.
