In Malaysia, the interest rate decisions are taken by The Central Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara Malaysia). The official interest rate is the Overnight Policy Rate.

Latest Updates

For 2020, growth is expected to gradually improve supported by resilient private spending and better export performance, while private investment is projected to remain modest.
