KUALA LUMPUR : Malaysia’s economic growth is forecast to ease slightly to 4.5 per cent in 2020 from the 4.6 per cent expected this year, said RAM Ratings today.

KUALA LUMPUR : The ringgit ended lower against the US dollar for the second straight day as uncertainty surrounding the ongoing United States and China trade war continued to dominate market sentiment. At 6pm, the ringgit eased to 4.1560/1590 against the greenback from Wednesday’s close of 4.1520/1550.

In addition, investors also reacted negatively to the weaker-than-expected Chinese industrial production data for October, with output growing 4.7% year-on-year. “I e.
