"Malaysia Food & Drink Report Q1 2015" is now available at Fast Market Research

The Malaysian economy's strong real GDP growth during 2014, which we forecast reaching 4.4% for the full-year, was driven by strong exports and increased domestic consumption. Proposed changes to the country's fuel subsidy scheme and the introduction in April 2015 of a 6% goods and services tax (GST) are likely to produce a slowdown in domestic consumption. However, these changes will have a positive impact on long-term fiscal discipline by reducing expenditure and increasing government revenue. BMI maintains its view that, across the forecast period, inflation should remain manageable and continued strong real GDP growth is to be expected.
