Malaysia: Growth in industrial production accelerates in September
November 10, 2015
Industrial production increased 5.1% in September over the same month last year, which came in above the 3.0% increase tallied in August. September’s result was driven by a rebound in the mining sector and solid growth in manufacturing. On the other hand, the electricity sector decelerated significantly in September.
On a monthly basis, industrial production expanded 1.7%, after contracting 0.9% in August. Despite September’s monthly increase, annual average growth in industrial production in September was steady at August’s 5.3%.
