He revealed a meeting was held yesterday afternoon from his office in Putra Perdana, Putrajaya between him and Nitto Freshco Synergy Sdn Bhd chief executive officer New Yoong Chee who represented these companies.
“The meeting was about a ‘smart partnership’ proposal for a renewable energy generation project using solar in Sarawak,” said Riot in a statement issued following the meeting.
The Serian MP revealed that during the meeting chaired by him, they also held online meetings with two representatives of the Japanese companies, Sayo Yamaguchi and Hideyuki Tamotsu, through Zoom.
He added these companies are exploring areas of investment in Malaysia.
