Malaysia: Industrial output rises at quickest pace in 10 months in February

Industrial output grew 1.5% in year-on-year terms in February, which was above January’s 1.2% increase. Looking at the details of the release, February’s upturn was chiefly driven by a pick-up in manufacturing output growth. Meanwhile, mining and quarrying and electricity and gas output both fell at a stronger clip than in January.
