Malaysia "Now" In Technical Recession: -4% to -5% Growth

Posted by Kris | Thursday, May 28, 2009 | , | 9 comments »

Okey. We are "now" officially baptized as having a technical recession. Note it is not a full-blown recession but a technical one.

As I mentioned in my previous posts, the moment "Bolehland" announced that we are in a recession, the bottom is near at sight. At least, that is what i am hoping for.

    Is this considered bad? Especially in PG I see a lot of people still willing to spend. :)

    Penang is Malaysia silicon valley. Thus, the spending power is considerable compared to other states excluding KL.

    But from what i know, alot of MNC are giving VSS or laying off workers in Penang due to the economic crisis.

    But somehow our KLCI can still stand on the 1,000 point line.

    I just realize I double post. :) Sorry about that.

    Yes, some MNCs are giving VSS. It is not easy to get a job if you're jobless now.
