PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian economy’s leading index (LI), which monitors economic performance in advance, registered 0.2% growth to 118.1 points in July compared to June on an annual basis due to the 0.3% increase in expected sales value in the manufacturing sector as well as a 0.2% rise in real imports of semiconductors.

“The annual change of LI improved to 2.7% in July 2017 from 0.6% in the preceding month,” the Statistics Department said in a press release.
