Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 : Economic Base and Population

The above is the original source. Which was then quoted on Wikipedia: "A notable phenomenon has been the increase in the presence of foreign residents in Kuala Lumpur, who now constitute about 9% of the city’s population"

An interesting trend? Do you see it continuing? Do you see much of SE Asian larger cities also having this trend as well? Do you think they'll stay, and settle roots? Or just there temporarily and will later move on?

Malaysia has been offering foreigners retirement visas if they can meet certain financial requirements. There are Singaporeans, British, Americans and others taking advantage of the program.

Often these days, when I get down to KL, I notice a sizable Arabic and Persian population as well. However, I am unable to tell if they are mostly tourists, or actually living there.

I think most of these foreign students will surely be from the Mid East and South Asia due to Malaysia's cultural background from India and the Islam religion.

SEA is a very poplar tourist destination for the Middle East, for sure, with cheap flights offered by the national airlines like Qatar and Gulf Air.

If KL really wants to be considered a cosmopolitan city to the next level then it must always be open not only to tourists but also to high number of foreign students, migrants and immigrants.
Then this number of 9% foreign students enrolled in KL universities and schools must be viewed as needs to be increased.
