Malaysia Sees Trade Diversion Cushioning Impact Of Tariff Wars


Bank Negara Malaysia governor Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus. (Bernama pic)KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara Malaysia, which has already downgraded its economic growth outlook for this year amid an escalating trade war, sees a partial offset as companies shift operations from China to sidestep higher US tariffs
In her first formal interview with the international media since she took office almost a year ago, BNM governor Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus said the trade diversion could add about 10 basis points to this year’s growth rate
That would be on top of BNM’s current forecast of 4.3% to 4.8% for 2019
“There’s a lot of uncertainty as to when the increased investments, the higher productive capacity that the firms would be making in order to take full advantage of the trade diversion will materialise,” she said here today
That was why the central bank included in its growth forecast only the anticipated losses from the trade war, including from the latest round of retaliatory measures between the world’s two largest economies, and not the benefits, she said
Like Vietnam, Malaysia is emerging as one of the key beneficiaries from the trade conflict given its manufacturing capability and open economy
Approved foreign direct investment into the manufacturing industry surged 127% in the first quarter from a year ago, recent data show
Penang, home to local facilities of Intel Corp and Dell Technologies Inc, was a particularly big recipient of the investment boom
Overall, the trade war and a global slowdown remain a drag on Malaysia’s export-reliant economy, with analysts expecting growth to slow to 4.5% in 2019, which would be the weakest pace in three years
“On a net-net basis the benefits from the trade diversion will not help fully offset the impact, the loss from the trade war,” Shamsiah, 55, said at the Sasana Kijang centre, a central bank facility named after the barking deer featured in its logo
A former deputy governor who was involved in investigating the scandal-plagued 1MDB, Shamsiah returned to the central bank in July last year following Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s surprise election victory
She replaced Muhammad Ibrahim in the top job after he faced questions about the central bank’s role in a deal linked to 1MDB
BNM was the second central bank in Asia to lower interest rates this year as policymakers in the region seek to bolster their economies against global risks and the US Federal Reserve shifted away from rate hikes
Shamsiah said the 25 basis-point reduction in the policy rate in May was in response to a tightening in financial conditions as a result of foreign outflows
“This cut is supposed to restore the level of monetary accommodativeness that will support sustainable growth with stable inflation,” she said. - FMT
