Malaysia, Japan further strengthen bilateral trade, economic ties

The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) said Malaysia and Japan reaffirmed their commitment to further strengthen bilateral trade, investment, and industrial ties for both countries’ mutual benefit. MITI said this commitment came after International Trade and Industry Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz hosted his counterpart Nishimura Yasutoshi and his delegation on December 28. The discussion also centred on economic cooperation in various free trade platforms such as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), and the Indo- Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF). Tengku Zafrul expressed his gratitude to Japan for its unrelenting support to Malaysia thus far and reaffirmed Malaysia’s continued commitment to the Look East Policy (LEP).
