About this book

Introduction

This book focuses on skilled labour migration from Malaysia to Singapore. In this regard, it examines a number of variables such as Better Perks and Benefits, Quality of Work Life, Ease of Immigration Procedures, International Exposure, Greater Job Availability, and Social Networks, and how they influence the decisions of Malaysian accounting professionals.
In doing so, the book elaborates on how this phenomenon is an indirect result of globalization, which is predominantly detrimental for developing countries such as Malaysia.
The book also highlights the need for these experts in their home country, as Malaysia is currently striving to improve its economy in order to achieve high-income status by 2020.
