Economic Outlook 2023 Redefined

Global economic activity is experiencing a broad-based and sharper-than-expected slowdown, with inflation higher than ever seen in several decades. The cost-of-living crisis, tightening financial conditions in most regions, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the lingering COVID-19 pandemic all weigh heavily on the outlook. Global growth has been slow with 6.0 percent in 2021 to 3.2 percent in 2022, is now predicted to grow at 2.7 percent in 2023.

According to RAM Rating Services Berhad (RAM Ratings), Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to remain reasonable in 2023 despite a slower growth forecast of 4.3 per cent compared with 8.2 per cent growth projection for 2022. Domestic demand supported by the continued recovery in the labour market and existing policy support measures is projected to remain the key driver for growth. That said, notable price pressures and tightening of monetary policy will likely dampen consumer spending. Additionally, the recently formed unity government is expected to focus on lifting Malaysia forward and boost investors’ confidence amid various geopolitical uncertainties.

This programme will deliberate on the insights of the global economic outlook and the impact of budget 2023 in strengthening and rebuilding the Malaysian economic sectors and businesses.
