Record type: Article


The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the extent and impact of deregulation in the Malaysian Banking System. In particular, the focus is on the extent to which the deregulation process has contributed to competition, stability and financial fragility, and the reallocation of portfolios and liquidity in the banking system. The results indicate that: first, an increase in the degree of competition and a reduction in liquidity and a better realiocation and bank's portfolios. Second, financial fragility and poor assets quality, together with bad management have forced the Central Bank to take further steps to maintain public confidence and slowed recovery. Third, interest rates are expected to be able to interact closely with economic activity and inflation.
