Malaysia Export Growth Slowed in November but Beat Forecast

Malaysia's exports growth eased in November but still beat expectations, helped by higher shipments of electrical and electronics products.

Exports from Southeast Asia's third-largest economy rose 14.4% from a year earlier, according to data released by the country's International Trade and Industry Ministry on Friday. A Wall Street Journal poll of economists had forecast a 13.8% gain. In October, exports grew 18.9% from a year earlier.
