  2. ADVERTISEMENT WHOLESALE SUKUK FUND JUNE 2022 ALL DATA AS AT 31 MAY 2022 UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED FUND MANAGER ’S COMMENTARY Malaysia posted a stronger-than-expected 1Q2022 GDP growth of 5.0% YoY (4Q2021: +3.6% YoY) as commendable performance of Services (+6.5% YoY) and Manufacturing (+6.6% YoY), following the re-opening of economy, helped offset the weak performance delivered by Mining (-1.1% YoY) and Construction (-6.2% YoY). By expenditure, domestic demand strengthened sharply at 4.4% YoY (4Q2021: +1.9% YoY), underpinned by strong public and private consumption. Despite the strong 1Q2022 performance, BNM maintains its GDP and inflation forecasts of 5.3% to 6.3% and 2.2% to 3.2% respectively for 2022. BNM surprised the market with a 25bps OPR hike at its May 2022 MPC meeting, bringing the policy rate to 2.00%. The central bank also signalled more hikes, to be done in a measured and gradual manner, given the firmer footing of domestic growth, which in turn is supported by strengthening demand, sustained exports and a stronger labour market. On the global front, BNM noted the sustained re-opening of global economy and improving labour market conditions have helped cushion the Ukraine crisis and lockdowns in China. It also expects inflation pressures to cause central banks to adjust their monetary policy at a faster pace. That said, BNM indicated that risks to growth remain, which include weaker global growth and further escalation of geopolitical conflicts, worsening supply chain disruptions and adverse developments surrounding Covid-19. .
