Malaysian market prospect:
Preparations for the next general election will dominate the political scene over the short-term. Although this is not due until 2018, there are signs that it might be called as early as mid-2017. Given the fragmented opposition, made up of three separate groups, the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition appears well placed to win the next election whenever it is held. Real GDP is forecast to grow by an average annual rate of 4.4% in 2017-21, slower than the historical period. (Source: The Economist Intelligence Unit 2017)
