In fact, we have already seen an increase of 45 percent in the supply of bonds in the first half of this year, in comparison to the same period last year. Year to date, we are already seeing an issuance of RM51.6 billion as of July 2017, when the total issuance of the whole of 2016 was at RM77.5 billion,” she said.
