logged several key milestones throughout the year. A TIV that recorded a total of 627,753
units in 2012, an achievement that had exceeded MAIs forecast of 615,000 units early last
year. Moving forward, MAI foresees that TIV performance in 2013 will continue to record
an encouraging growth. This is supported by a number of factors including expansion plan
/ investment announced by several OEMs in 2012 which will see increment in the number
of vehicles production for 2013 and launching of new models especially in the passenger
vehicle (PV) segment.
In addition to that, the new National Automotive Policy (NAP) which is expected to be
announced this year (on gradual basis), will among others create a conducive business
environment especially in the production of Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) segment.

CHAPTER 1: MALAYSIA MACROECONOMIC 2012 OVERVIEW

MALAYSIA ECONOMY 2012 OVERVIEW


The Malaysian economy continued to grow steadily throughout 2012 despite most of the
worlds major developed nations continue to experience slower economic recovery from
previous year including the euro zone sovereign debt, resulting in the fluctuation of
interest rates and currencies and higher degree of market uncertainties.
The combination of financial crunch, public debt, banking crisis and economic predicament
continue to hinder quick solutions of this global financial catastrophe. Strong domestic
demand continue to drive Malaysian economic growth although slightly slower year-onyear growth in private consumption and private and public investment outlays. GDP
growth in Q3 2012 has recorded growth of 5.2%, dropped to 0.4% as compared to previous
quarter after slow beginning in Q1 2012 with 5.1%. Real GDP growth in 2012 is expected to
settle at 5.1%.
