BMI View: Underpinning our positive annual growth forecasts across the freight modes in Malaysia over
our medium-term forecast period will be the relatively advantageous agreement that the country managed
to obtain with regard to the recently signed Trans Pacific Part ..."
BMI View: We expect healthy growth across the freight modes in Malaysia in 2016, with rail freight

Activity levels across Malaysia's different freight modes will grow moderately-to-strongly in 2015,
generally picking up pace compared to our estimated levels for 2014. As infrastructure investment plans are
advancing, Malaysia will be gradually expanding its freight capacity t ..."
Malaysia's freight transport sector is developing in order to keep pace with the country's growing
population, which is projected by BMI to grow by 13.4% between 2013-2022 to 33.7mn. The major driver
of a country's demand for containers and other cargo is its consumer ..."
Malaysia's latest real GDP growth reading came in decisively weak at 4.3% year-on-year (y-o-y) for Q213,
vindicating our core view that cooling Chinese economic growth would weigh heavily on the export sector.
