New Food research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/11/2013 -- We believe that a mixture of declining global grain prices, subdued money supply growth and benign wage price pressure will combine to keep Malaysian consumer price inflation in check as we head into 2014. Malaysia's improving labour market dynamics not only bodes well for economic growth and private spending, but also is likely to help to keep labour costs stable, thus promoting investment.
