KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s exports in April are likely to have eased for the third successive month, declining at a faster annual pace than in March, a Reuters poll showed on Friday. 

The median forecast among the 11 economists surveyed was for exports to fall 1% in April from a year earlier, quicker than the 0.5% decline recorded in March. 

Individual estimates, however, ranged widely between an annual decline of 9% and a rise of 1.9%.

Imports were also seen falling 0.2% year-on-year in April, marginally faster than the 0.1% decline in the previous month, the poll showed.
