On 26 april Malaysian Minister of Trade & Industry Mustapa Mohamed and the EU ambassadors took an evening out of their busy schedules to discuss bilateral trade relations.
The economic ties between Malaysia and EU are already strong with for instance more than 1000 European companies operating in Malaysia of which 65 are fully registered subsidiaries (Sdn. Bhd.) of Danish companies.
Considering the obvious potential to grow EU-Malaysia trade and investments further, focus is now on the expected relaunch of negotiations for a Malaysia-EU Free Trade Agreement.
The informal discussion with MITI Minister Mustapa was hosted by EU Ambassador Maria Castillo-Fernandez and also attended by senior MITI staff, including Secretary General Datuk Seri Jayasiri and Deputy SecGen Wan Suraya.
