Malaysian construction sector looks bright

The construction sector is expected to remain attractive next year amid a weaker domestic currency due to lower demand for commodities and the general public apprehension over the goods and services tax (GST).

Malaysia Building Society Bhd president and CEO Datuk Ahmad Zaini Osman said he expected the property market to remain sustainable, with the demand not much affected, even upon GST implementation in April next year.
