Whats up Productivity Nexus : Issue 3

Subdued global economic growth and commodity prices have caused gradual
slowdown in the growth of consumer spending and investments as households
adjust to moderating job prospects and fiscal consolidation. World Bank has noted
that Malaysia, being an open economy, faces risks from external developments
such as declines in global oil prices and other commodities that Malaysia exports,
the evolving US economic policies and their impact on global trade, energy prices,
financial policies and exchange rates. Uncertainties in global financial markets
have also affected investors and business sentiments. Hence, rising productivity
becomes the main economic and income growth in Malaysia as traditional drivers
of growth moderate. The nation also faces slower labour force growth as the Malaysian
population ages. Cognisance must be given for our Productivity Measurement
Framework to understand the possible way forward towards better quality of
life.
