Although this rate was not maintained in 2005, annual average growth remained high at 5.6% during 2005â06. In 2007, the economy grew at a rate of 6.5%.
According to the BNM, strong growth was driven largely by robust domestic demand. Moreover, private consumption and investment activities expanded strongly during the year. Private consumption recorded its highest growth rate since 2000, buoyed by rising disposable income. Furthermore, strong investment
in the manufacturing, services, construction, and oil and gas industries combined with positive business sentiment supported the expansion in private investment. This was further reinforced by large inflows of FDI. However, the global economic crisis led to a slowdown in the Malaysian economy, with the growth rate dropping to 4.7% in 2008 and contracting by 1.6% in 2009. According to Datamonitor, the economy recovered to grow at 7.2% in 2010.
