Malaysia's 2019 GDP Disappoints
Julia Goh, Senior Economist, UOB Malaysia
For 2019, Malaysia's GDP came in at 4.3% after registering only 3.6% in the last quarter of the year which was the lowest in 10 years. The deterioration was due to disappointments in the mining and agriculture sectors with weaker CPO prices and disruptions in oil and gas production. We speak to Julia Goh, Senior Economist at UOB Malaysia on what this will mean for the economy in 2020 and will this lead to a stimulus package especially since the impact of Covid 19 is yet unknown.
