A partnership company is defined as a business whose profits and management options are shared between two or more individuals. This means, in essence, the business has two or more owners. By having more than one owner, this ensures that decisions can always be made for the benefit of the company.
There are several successful partnership companies in Malaysia. As a foreign national, who would like to set up your own partnership company, looking at pre-existing ones would be wise.
