This marked a decline from the previous quarter’s surplus of RM27.5 billion (5.9 percent of GDP).

Electrical and electronic products, petroleum, and chemical goods were the primary exports, primarily to Singapore, China, and the United States. 

On the other hand, imports of intermediate, capital, and consumer goods decreased by 14.6 percent from quarter to quarter. The services account recorded a higher deficit of RM12.8 billion, while the financial account showed a net outflow of RM2.4 billion.
