Malaysia is becoming a leading exporter of semiconductors, in part because of rising production costs in other Asian countries. Principal industrial activities are the processing of rubber, palm oil, timber, tin, and petroleum; and the production of electrical and electronic equipment, processed food, textiles, chemicals, building materials, and handicrafts.
