Malaysia has become the latest Asian economy to report that its pace of recovery moderated between April and June.

The economy expanded at its fastest speed in a decade in the first quarter with GDP accelerating at an annualised 10.1 per cent rate.

This has slowed to a still impressive 8.9% for the second quarter. Exports have been the main driver of growth.
