Julia Goh, Senior Economist, UOB Bank
Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng expects Malaysia’s second quarter economic growth to plateau at 4.5 percent, the same as in the first quarter. However, economists polled by Reuters are slightly more bullish in their expectations. The median forecast from the poll of 13 economists was for growth of 4.8% in April-June, with individual forecasts ranging from 4.3% to 5.0%. We speak to Julia Goh, Senior Economist at UOB Bank for a preview on Malaysia’s GDP.
