In recent years, one of the most important elements driving Malaysia's GDP development has been the increase in exports, which has been supported by the entry of foreign direct investment.  Electrical and electronic items (36%), chemicals (7.1%), petroleum products (7%), liquefied natural gas (6%), and palm oil (5.1%) are Malaysia's primary exports. In terms of export partners, Malaysia's top five are Singapore (14%), China (13%), the European Union (10%), Japan (9.5%) the United States (9.4%), and Thailand (6%).

A higher than expected figure should be seen as positive (bullish) for the MYR while a lower than expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the MYR.
