Economic Environment

ASEAN economy expanded 4.8% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2018, marking an uptick from Q3’s revised 4.6% expansion (previously reported: +4.7% year-on-year). The Malaysian economy accelerated from the third quarter thanks to a marked recovery in the external sector. Moreover, private consumption continued to rocket, spurred by wage growth, and minimal price pressures due to government tax changes and lower oil prices.

Similar dynamics were at play in the Philippines, which also gathered some momentum from Q3. Robust private consumption was supported by lower unemployment and solid remittances growth, while a lower oil import bill caused the external sector to strengthen. In Thailand, healthy consumer spending and private investment supported economic activity.
