Malaysia Dec factory output growth seen cooling to 0.8%

[KUALA LUMPUR] Malaysia's industrial production in December is expected to have grown 0.8 per cent from a year earlier, a Reuters poll showed, its weakest pace since July 2014.

Factory output growth in November slipped to 1.8 per cent year-on-year on falling global demand and declines in mining production.

Malaysia's December exports rose 1.4 per cent from a year ago, well below market expectations, as demand for its commodities slumped.
