SEDAR-SEDAR LA SIKIT!!!

KUALA LUMPUR, March 6, 2009 — The country recorded RM8.83 billion in trade surplus in January, making it the 135th consecutive month of trade surplus since November 1997, but total volume declined by 29.7 per cent from a year ago. Total trade value for the month was RM67.77 billion. Exports in January 2009 were valued at RM38.3 billion, a drop of 27.8 per cent from January 2008, the Statistics Department said in a statement today. Total imports fell by 32 per cent to RM29.47 billion from a year ago. "Month-on-month, exports fell by 16.9 per cent from December 2008, while imports were lower by 14.7 per cent. The performance in January was in tandem with countries that have announced their January trade figures," it said.

Major export products were electrical and electronics products valued at RM13.74 billion or 35.9 per cent of total exports, liquefied natural gas (RM4.18 billion or 10.9 per cent of total exports), palm oil (RM2.77 billion or 7.2 per cent of total export), chemical and chemical products (RM2.12 billion or 5.5 per cent of total export) and crude petroleum (RM1.81 billion or 4.7 per cent of total export), it said.

Machinery, appliances and parts (RM1.35 billion or 3.5 per cent of total exports), refined petroleum products (RM1.16 billion or three per cent of total exports), wood products (RM1.02 billion or 2.7 per cent of total exports), transport equipment (RM1.01 billion or 2.6 per cent of total exports) and metal (RM948.4 million or 2.5 per cent exports).

Singapore, Japan, the United States, China and South Korea were the top five export destinations, accounting for 51.7 per cent of Malaysia's exports in January. Exports to Asean, valued at RM9.18 billion or 24 per cent of Malaysia's total exports in January 2009, fell by 38.1 per cent from January 2008.

The lower volume was due to lower exports of electrical and electronic products, refined petroleum products, chemicals and chemical products, machinery appliances and parts, metal manufactures, crude petroleum and iron and steel products, said the department.

Total imports in January were down by 32 per cent to RM29.47 billion from last year. The three main import categories were intermediate goods valued at RM19.85 billion or 67.4 per cent of total imports, capital goods (RM4.83 billion or 16.4 per cent) and consumption goods (RM2.42 billion or 8.2 per cent of total imports).

Top 10 import sources were China, Japan, the United States, Singapore, Thailand, Germany, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan and Australia. Total imports from Asean amounted to RM6.67 billion or 23.3 per cent of Malaysia's total imports.

  1. Assalamualaikum,

    Some of the Politicians are living true to what they "Politicians!"

    Except for a few like DS Najib, Md Zin Din, Noh Omar..

    The Oppositions are worse, they did nothing but instigate the rakyat to hate the government. The very thing they hope to be one day.

Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayat 120

"Bukan orang Yahudi, ataupun Nasrani yang akan menerimamu, melainkan jika kamu mengikut agama mereka. Katakan,"Hanya petunjuk Allah sahaja yang benar" Jika kamu menyetujui kehendak mereka, setelah kamu menerima ilmu pengetahuan, kamu akan dapati tidak ada satu perjanjian ataupun penyokong dapat menolongmu dari Allah."

Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayat 216

"Kamu diwajibkan berperang (untuk menentang pencerobohan) sedang peperangan itu ialah perkara yang kamu benci; dan boleh jadi kamu benci kepada sesuatu padahal ia baik bagi kamu, dan boleh jadi kamu suka kepada sesuatu padahal ia buruk bagi kamu. Dan (ingatlah), Allah jualah Yang mengetahui (semuanya itu), sedang kamu tidak mengetahuinya."

Surah Al-Imran, Ayat 28

"Janganlah orang-orang yang beriman mengambil orang- orang kafir menjadi teman rapat dengan meninggalkan orang-orang yang beriman. Dan sesiapa yang melakukan (larangan) yang demikian maka tiadalah ia (mendapat perlindungan) dari Allah dalam sesuatu apapun, kecuali kamu hendak menjaga diri daripada sesuatu bahaya yang ditakuti dari pihak mereka (yang kafir itu). Dan Allah perintahkan supaya kamu beringat-ingat terhadap kekuasaan diriNya (menyeksa kamu). Dan kepada Allah jualah tempat kembali."

Surah Al-An'aam, Ayat 67

"Tiap-tiap khabar berita mempunyai masa yang menentukannya (yang membuktikan benarnya atau dustanya); dan kamu akan mengetahuinya."

Surah Ar-Ra'd, Ayat 11

"Bagi tiap-tiap seorang ada malaikat penjaganya silih berganti dari hadapannya dan dari belakangnya, yang mengawas dan menjaganya (dari sesuatu bahaya) dengan perintah Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah tidak mengubah apa yang ada pada sesuatu kaum sehingga mereka mengubah apa yang ada pada diri mereka sendiri. Dan apabila Allah menghendaki untuk menimpakan kepada sesuatu kaum bala bencana (disebabkan kesalahan mereka sendiri), maka tiada sesiapapun yang dapat menolak atau menahan apa yang ditetapkanNya itu, dan tidak ada sesiapapun yang dapat menolong dan melindungi mereka selain daripadaNya."
