Cover Story: Is the retail sales boom sustainable?

Using the second-quarter retail growth in 2020 (down 30.9%), 2021 (up 3.4%) and 2022 (up 62.5%) as examples, he explains, “Assuming second-quarter sales in 2019 were RM100, in 2020, sales would have dropped to RM69.10; in 2021, sales would have increased slightly to RM71.45.

That year, domestic tourism expenditure was higher than inbound or outbound spend, with RM103.2 billion in tourism receipts going to shopping (37.8%), automotive fuel (15%), food and beverage (14.3%), visited households (10.2%), accommodation (8.4%), transportation (6.2%), other activities (5%), and entrance fees, tickets or packages (3.1%).“The fact that RM15.6 billion was spent on petrol or diesel showed that the overwhelming number of domestic visitors drive their own vehicles.
