Bank Negara Malaysia expects Malaysia’s economic outlook to remain strong despite the post-14th general election environment, given its resilient and robust financial system, NSTonline reported. Governor Muhammad Ibrahim said the ringgit would reflect Malaysia’s strong economic fundamentals in the medium- and long-term. “Our strength can be seen from the current account surplus, a strong reserves position, low level of external indebtedness and strong capital buffers in the banking system. We expect these strong conditions to persist. As many of you here can testify, our financial system is resilient and robust. On numerous occasions in the past decade, we have been able to manage market volatility due to the continuous measures taken over the years to develop our financial markets,” he said at the Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers Graduation Ceremony 2018 in Kuala Lumpur Saturday. Muhammad said the market now was balanced, deep and liquid to provide the structural support for orderly market conditions, adding that moving ahead, BNM would continue to ensure orderly conditions in the onshore financial markets.
