Malaysia’s fourth quarter will be ‘the challenge’ for its economy, says finance minister

  • The fourth quarter will be "the challenge" for Malaysia's economy if global headwinds such as Russia's war on Ukraine and China's zero-Covid policy persist, said Finance Minister Zafrul Aziz. 
  • Growth momentum for July to September should be strong, but this could be the result of a negative base effect from the same time in the previous year, Zafrul said. 
  • On Friday, Malaysia's central bank announced that the country's economy grew by 8.9% in April to June from a year earlier.
