I was actually not surprise to see that, as of today - the East Coast exporters are listed among the minimum in the Malaysia Exporter Database.
Total: 309 out of 13,658 total exporters registered with MATRADE which is only 2.26%.
I believe those that registered consists of traders, associations, craft industries (batik and keropok lekor), maybe one or two oil and gas (Petronas as the most notable) and maybe ICT industry. Tourism may also be included though in statistics it will be categorised in a completely different section.
Total EC Manufacturers : 243
Kelantan : 59
Terengganu : 72
Pahang : 112
Total EC Services Providers : 45
Kelantan : 8
Terengganu : 20
Pahang : 17
