Malaysia’s Sept exports rise by 8.8%

MALAYSIA’S exports rose more sharply than expected in September, gaining for a fourth straight month, helped by demand from its key markets and partly from the effects of a weak ringgit.

Southeast Asia’s third-largest economy has been hit hard by weak global prices for its commodity exports, a slump in the ringgit to 17-year lows and a slowdown in China.

Exports in September rose 8.8 per cent from a year earlier, data from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry showed yesterday, their highest year-on-year growth since May 2014. Imports rose 9.6 per cent on higher demand for capital and consumer goods, also beating forecast for a 3.9 per cent rise, and sharply reversing a fall of 6.1 per cent in August.

“What we are seeing is a weak ringgit inflating the export growth figures,” said Julia Goh, economist at UOB Bank.

Exports to EU rose 23.7 per cent. Shipments to China went up 13.1 per cent on strong demand for manufactured and petroleum products.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
