Malaysia's economy shrank by 17.Asian Metal CopyrightMalaysia's economy shrank by 17.Asian Metal Copyright1% in the second quarter from a year earlier, its worst contraction in over two decades, as strict COVID-19 measures at home and abroad slammed consumer spending and exports, the central bank said last Friday.

The downturn represents a sharp fall from the 0.7% expansion in the first quarter.

It was the first time the economy had contracted since the global financial crisis in 2009, and marked the worst slump since the Asia financial crisis when gross domestic product shrank 11.2% in the fourth quarter of 1998.

"We are likely to see a trough in the second quarter. The economy is poised for a recovery in the second half and rebound further in 2021," Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus said.
