(MENAFN) Malaysia's Central Bank announced that the country's third-quarter economic growth decelerated to 5.2 percent, down from 5.6 percent in the second quarter, reported Xinhua News.

The bank said that in the period, local demand jumped by 11.4 percent, driven by constant expansion in private consumption, favorable labor market conditions and continued income growth.

On the other hand, public expenditure slowed to 2.3 percent, due to lower spending in supplies and services.

The manufacturing sector's growth moderated to 3.3 percent, while the construction and services sectors posted notable expansion due to strong domestic demand.

It is worth noting that Malaysia's current account surplus fell to USD3.09 billion as imports growth exceeded exports.
