Balance of Payments

Every single country does business with others to some degree. International trade and finance are especially important for Malaysia so we can access and benefit from global markets. By recording all our international transactions, the Balance of Payments (BOP) shows us how resources are flowing between Malaysia and other countries. It is one of 3 primary national accounts that convey Malaysia' broad economic performance, the other two being our Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and International Investment Position (IIP). This dashboard gives you an easy way to explore our BOP. Enjoy!
