Malaysia GDP Expands 5.1% in Q4 2013

In the fourth quarter of 2013, Malaysian economy accelerated to an annual growth rate of 5.1 percent, the fastest pace in the last four quarters, supported by private sector demand and an improvement in exports.

Private consumption growth remained high in the fourth quarter, although the pace of expansion moderated (7.3 percent from 8.2 percent in the previous quarter). Household spending continued to be supported by stable employment conditions and sustained wage growth, especially in the domestic-oriented sectors. Growth in public consumption moderated to 5.1 percent (Q3 2013: 7.8 percent), reflecting lower government spending on emoluments.  

Gross fixed capital formation grew by 5.8 percent (Q3 2013: 8.6 percent), led by robust private sector capital spending amidst a contraction in public investment growth. Growth in private investment improved to 16.5 percent (Q3 2013: 15.2 percent), on account of higher capital spending in the services and manufacturing sectors. Public investment declined by 2.7 percent (Q3 2013: -1.3 percent), reflecting moderating capital spending by the public enterprises amid a smaller contraction in Federal Government development expenditure. 

Both exports and imports grew at a faster pace (2.9 percent and 4.4 percent, respectively), largely reflecting the improvement in the global economy and the sustained expansion of domestic demand respectively. 

On the supply side, all sectors posted positive growth rates, except mining and quarrying (-1.5 percent), due to lower production of rubber, palm oil and crude oil.

On a quarter-on-quarter seasonally adjusted basis, the economy advanced 2.1 percent (1.7 percent in the previous three-month period). For the year 2013, the GDPgrew by 4.7 percent.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
