World Bank upgraded Malaysia's gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecast to 4.5% for this year, as compared to an expansion of 4.3% predicted earlier. According to the World Bank , the GDP forecast was upgraded due to rebound in exports during the third quarter of the year, resulting from increased private consumption. The economy is projected to accelerate 4.8% next year, while it is likely to expand 4.9% in 2015. The nation is likely to maintain current account surplus next year.
