Any other effects of the Rm/US$ rate? Thank you for your input March 30, 2017 at 09:48 #8336 Florian BansacParticipant Hi @betty-cheng I guess this data is difficult to measure. Here’s another (older) post that states other effects from the MYR/USD rate though: Positive And Negative Effects Of The Ringgit’s Shameful Fall That You Didn’t Think About Good luck in your data search!
