Asian Development Bank and Malaysia: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | July 2006
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Malaysia as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Malaysia, considered a middle-income country, has committed itself to becoming a developed country by 2020. This is the cornerstone of the recent 9th Malaysia Plan (2006–2010), which also targets eliminating hardcore poverty and reducing overall poverty incidence by 50%. This national commitment follows the good economic performance in the last 4 years with real gross domestic product growing an average 5.5% per year. The economy has benefited from strong growth in world consumer demand for electronic products. As net petroleum exporter, high crude oil prices provide revenues to mitigate the broad negative impacts of high energy prices.
