May 05, 2018 00:00:00

KUALA LUMPUR, May 04 (Reuters): Malaysia's exports in March rebounded after a slowdown to rise 2.2 per cent from a year earlier, underpinned by higher shipments of manufactured goods, government data showed on Friday.

Export growth was above the 1.7 per cent rise forecast by a Reuters poll, and up from the 2.0 per cent decline in February, when shipments took a hit during the Lunar New Year break. The country's exports in March totalled 84.5 billion ringgit, the highest monthly export value ever recorded, the International Trade and Industry Ministry said in a statement.
