This paper aims to investigate the role and influence of the transportation sector on the national economy of Malaysia by using input-output analysis. Data of Input Output Tables 2005 is used to analyse the multiplier effects and inter-industrial linkage effects in 23 sectors. Among others, the sub-sector under the transportation that are being analysed are Land Transport, Air Transport, and Water Transport which includes Port and Airport Operation Services, Highway, Bridge and Tunnel Operation Services as well as Communication. The methodological approach is through the use of input-output which utilizes the multiplier analysis and inter industrial linkages analysis. Taking the transportation industry as exogenous, current study further explores its economic effects on Gross Domestic Product (GDP), household income and inter-linkages. The results show that the Air Transport and Communication in Malaysia has more strength in absorbing the products of related industries. In term of supply, it has strength of being used as an input by other industries as well as it has a relatively strong capacity for pulling in other industries.
