The rebound in demand for tech products could help Malaysia’s trade grow in 2024. However, risks of an economic slowdown in the United States and China could result in uneven demand, according to economists.

The Statistics Department yesterday revealed Malaysia’s exports fell some 5.9% year-on-year (y-o-y) for November 2023, while imports increased by 1.7%.
