Malaysia: Shares end higher

Malaysian fuel company Petronas Dagangan Bhd, the country's top-performing stock in 2015, will focus this year on managing inventories to help cut operating costs and sustain dividend payments as it anticipates continued oil market turmoil.

Malaysian shares closed higher on Tuesday, with the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index gaining 14.63 points to 1,685.36.

Some 1.95 billion lots, valued at RM1.80 billion, were traded. Gainers outnumbered losers 452 to 397.
