"Most of the world's largest enterprises today were once MSMEs.”
- Wayne Lim -


The MALAYSIA SME® Media Group, established in 2005, is Malaysia’s first English medium publisher focusing on MSMEs (micro, small and medium-sized enterprises). The idea of an MSME-centric business newspaper was the brainchild of Mr Wayne Lim, Founder of the media group.
