KUALA LUMPUR: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects the Malaysia economy to grow at a slower pace of between 5% and 5.5% in 2018 and inflation to rise at a slower pace.

It said on Tuesday while the cyclical upturn will begin to normalise, momentum in activity is expected to remain strong in the first half of the year, supported by domestic demand and continued strength in global trade.
