Release Date : Friday 22, December 2017 1200

 

Malaysia’s economy will continue a favourable growth between February to April 2018

The Leading Index (LI) which monitors the economic performance in advance increased by 0.2% to 120.1 points in October 2017 compared to 119.9 points in the previous month. This was mainly induced by Real Money Supply, M1 (0.4%) and Number of New Companies Registered (0.3%). The annual change of LI rose to 3.2% as against 2.5% as recorded in September 2017.

The Coincident Index (CI) which measures the current economic activity, increased 0.5% in the reference month. Three components of CI that contributed to the increase were Volume Index of Retail Trade (0.4%), Real Contributions to EPF and Capacity Utilisation in Manufacturing Sector which posted 0.1% respectively. The annual change of CI continued growing to 3.5% in October 2017.

The LI and CI showed an improvement in October 2017 as compared to the preceding month. Concurrently, the Diffusion Index for CI reached 100.0%, while LI remained at 85.7%. This indicates that the Malaysia’s economy will continue a favourable growth between February to April 2018.
