French Companies in Malaysia

How many French companies are there in Malaysia? We are going to answer this question in this post using the data PURELY from Glassdoor.

As of today, 20 June 2015, there is a total of 2337 companies in Malaysia in Glassdoor’s database. Let see how many of them are companies with headquarter located in France. I use that as an indicator for a French company. So here is the list:

Note: I am also including the companies from Switzerland since the Swiss also speaks French.
