The Global Financial Crisis and Asia

This chapter argues that Malaysia, being a small open economy with a strong export-dependent manufacturing sector, was particularly vulnerable to the global financial crisis. This chapter discusses the importance of trade to the economy and Malaysiafs reliance on demand generated by developed economies. The chapter analyzes the impact of the current crisis on the Malaysian economy and highlights the need to find new ways of thinking about how the country should re-position itself, since the crisis undermines the assumptions on which the countryfs growth strategy is based. It then suggests that Malaysia adopt a rebalancing strategy in response to the crisis.

Keywords:   Malaysian economy, financial crisis, export dependency, rebalancing strategy, policy response, impact of crisis
