Malaysia's April industrial output growth trumps view

Analysts warn economic growth may slow amid policy uncertainty

KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) - Malaysia's industrial production growth accelerated in April thanks to gains in manufacturing activities and electricity generation, official data released Monday show.

The industrial production index -- a measure of output from mines, power plants and factories - rose 4.6% in April from a year earlier, the Department of Statistics said in a statement. That compares with March's 3.1% year-on-year growth, and a median 3.7% forecast in a Nikkei Markets poll of economists. The index rose 1.5% from March on a seasonally adjusted basis.
