ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the economy of Malaysia. Since its independence, the country's real gross domestic product (GDP) grew by an average of 6.5% per year from 1957 to 2005. The government continues to actively manage the economy through its New Economic Policy (NEP) launched in 1971. During the 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis, the Malaysian economy went into sharp recession. Slower economic growth is currently being experienced by Malaysia because of decreasing global demand which is taking a toll on Malaysian exports.
