  • Minister Mustapa Bin Mohamed

Malaysia is keen to invest more in India to contribute to the government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign, visiting Malaysian Trade and Industry Minister Mr Mustapa Bin Mohamed said in New Delhi in January.

Addressing a seminar on “India-Malaysia Trade and Economic Cooperation in the Context of Indian Economy Dynamism and India’s Act East Policy” here, Mr Mohamed said that India and Malaysia have been close friends and are important trading partners. Their bilateral trade volume stands at $13.5 billion and is poised to reach much higher levels in future.

He also emphasised on India-ASEAN relations and said that India has been important in bridging the gap between Association of Southeast Asian Nations members. He said that this is a crucial time for Malaysia as it has assumed the ASEAN chair this year.
