Malaysia Retail Report Q2 2016

Malaysia Retail Report Q2 2016

BMI View: In 2015, Malaysia's retail market suffered from the rapid depreciation of ringgit as well as theintroduction of the Goods and Services Tax, which significantly dented sales, particularly in the second halfof the year. While these factors will remain in play during the first quarters of 2016, we believe thecountry's retail sales will recover in 2016 on account of sustained Malaysia's economic growth, risinghousehold incomes and accommodative monetary policy. That said, we note that precipitous household debtlevels pose a downside risk to our forecasts, especially over the medium term.
