KUALA LUMPUR:– Fiscal measures are a particular area of focus for Malaysia given that the country's high debt burden acts as a credit constraint, said Moody's Investors Service.

“Consequently, to what extent the new government achieves fiscal deficit consolidation will be vital in gauging the eventual effects on Malaysia's fiscal metrics and credit profile,” it said.
