It is vital for the establishment to know where the nation has been and where they are now at the present and where they are going to. A business like Samsung would understand that Malaysia is located alongside the Straits of Malacca, connecting it to the Indian Deep-sea to the South China Ocean and then the Pacific Ocean so interchange in this part has been about for centuries. Spices were the foremost goods that were traded in the 15th century, and as the Malacca Sultanate started to grow from strength to strength, it ultimately increased into domination on all trade that would pass through the passages. The Straits of Malacca are at the present one of the most energetic delivery lanes in the world. Later centuries would begin to see the Portuguese, British and Dutch controlling trade in Malaysia. The British made investments and developments in the tin mining engineering for exports in Peninsular Malaysia during the 19th century, by 1883 Malaysia had turned into the biggest tin creator in the world (Miller, J. A., 2002). By the end of the 19th century, it was providing approximately 54% of the world's tin. Palm oil and rubber are also important exports during this period.
