The Market Development Grant (MDG) is a financial support facility in the form of a reimbursable grant. MDG assists small and medium enterprises (SMEs), service providers, trade & industry associations, chambers of commerce and professional bodies, to undertake export promotional activities. The maximum ceiling amount for MDG per company is RM200,000.
The financial grant covers specific export promotional activities, and companies awarded the MDG support facility, will be able to seek reimbursement of expenses incurred in undertaking those activities. MDG disbursements are subject to the availability of funds.
