KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's exports in May swelled 32.5% on the year to 79.4 billion ringgit ($18.5 billion), largely driven by demand for manufactured goods, the country's trade ministry said on Friday.

The growth beat the 24% recorded two months earlier and the median estimate of 21% in a poll by Nikkei Markets.
