Malaysian brands have gained a strong brand recall among Singapore consumers.
This is according to the list of top Asian brands in Singapore announced by Brands Alliance, which used Influential Brands, a fast growing brand leadership platform for the survey.
The list is also based on consolidated research conducted on Asian brands influence in the republic from 2013-2015 and covered more than 4,000 consumers nationwide involving brands from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Brand Alliance, with more than 17 years in the industry, in a statement also revealed that Malaysian brands that topped the list were largely from the Fast-Moving Consumer Brands (FMCG) such as Julie’s Biscuits, Ah Huat White Coffee and Hup Seng.
From the Food and Beverage Industry, it was The Manhattan Fish Market and PappaRich. Brands Alliance Group said other Malaysian brands named by Singapore consumers were AirAsia (low cost carrier, Royal Selangor (luxury pewter), Hatten Group and SP Setia (property developer) and Resorts World (integrated resort).
According to the group, the study unveiled that due to the close proximity and free trading efforts between the two nations, most companies in Malaysia penetrated Singapore as their first overseas market as part of their growth plan.
“Therefore, Malaysia brands have gained strong brand recall amongst Singapore consumers for their nostalgic attachment, strong branding and exposure,” it said.
Unrestrained power in your hands
For almost 20 years, Malaysiakini has stayed true to the cause of providing the Malaysian public with the truth. We believe that with unadulterated information, the people will obtain power to make informed decisions.
Decisions which lead to a healthy, robust nation - ours!
Keep the truth alive. Support your robust, independent media. You have the unrestrained power to do so.
Who says it's not our fault?
We aren’t trained to take responsibility.
Everytime we observe an injustice - and choose to keep mum - the prevalence of injustice becomes our fault.
Astute journalism paves the way for the public to be continuously furnished with the fastidious truth. You are continuously empowered to act and to uphold the integrity of the nation.
The Rakyat owns Malaysiakini
We choose to take a risk on independent media because we believe that only through independent reporting can one be NOT beholden to the interest of businesses or organisations. This allows us to really pursue the truth - aggressively.
Independent for 20 years.
The victorious people
In the light of holding the truth to power, Malaysiakini will continue to uphold its mission of providing credible news to its discerning public. Your support for Malaysiakini is always treasured as a testament of innate nationalism. Your victory is our history.
Quietly. Effectively. Says it all. Malaysiakini.
Speaking truth to power
When we embarked on this journey 20 years ago, we knew we would face intimidation, harassment, raids, arrests and perhaps even jail terms. We got into this venture with our eyes wide open.
The main reason we have survived this long - when many others have folded - is partly because we are prudent in our finances. But while we may be tightfisted in our budgeting, we do not hold back when it comes to speaking truth to power and holding power to account. And certainly, this new administration will not stop us from continuing to do so.
