Malaysia and the UK on Tuesday (Feb 8) discussed efforts to deepen bilateral integration for better economic partnerships, particularly in new growth areas identified in Malaysia’s National Investment Aspirations.
Senior Minister cum International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali also urged UK industries to build more partnerships with institutes here, which would further strengthen the local investment ecosystem and provide vast opportunities for both Malaysia and the UK, including creating more high-skilled and high-income jobs to support the operations.
“This will not only strengthen bilateral relations, but also intensify strategic development,” he posted on his Twitter account after a breakfast meeting with British High Commissioner to Malaysia Charles Hay and several UK companies.
Azmin also shared Malaysia’s post-recovery opening strategy as well as plans to increase collaboration for technology transfer.
He also talked about Malaysia’s status in ratifying and entering into force the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) as well as opportunities available to UK companies operating in Malaysia.
