Ermm..quite true la kot..only Petronas is in Forbes 500 company every year..
But MNC term is the company has business in other countries beside their own.
I also would like to put MAA as they have business in philip, sgpore, australia and indon. But dunno la ehehe
There are generally 3 aspects of a true MNC.
(1) they sell directly to customers overseas under their own brand & channels. Buying simple ownership of an existing overseas company (eg. Proton & Lotus) doesn't count.
(2) they put assets on the ground overseas ie. factories, design centers, offices, subsidiaries etc.
(3) they hire people overseas to man (1) and (2).
Really... there aren't many Malaysian MNCs if you look at it that way. I'd say you can count all of them with the fingers on one hand, probably not even that. Zero, if you consider MNCs to be global, rather than regional or neighbouring countries only.
