The strong recognition of Malaysia’s renewed emphasis on sustainability agenda seen throughout this mission validated the sustained confidence of the European investors and importers towards Malaysia, as a favoured business destination and a strategic gateway for European businesses to venture further into Southeast Asia region and the larger Asia Pacific market.

Throughout the TIM, Mohamed Azmin comprehensively shared Malaysia’s vision in the sustainable agenda, notably the Malaysian target of achieving carbon net-zero greenhouse gas emissions earliest by 2050, as outlined in the 12th Malaysia Plan.“On account of the various opportunities in Malaysia’s green technology and green mobility sectors as well as in other high-value industries, the European businesses and investors look forward to intensifying participation in those important areas that are among the key focus in Malaysia’s economic development aspirations,” it said.

During an engagement with the United Kingdom delegation, the ministry has also identified collaboration opportunities in the areas of Industry 4.0, renewable energy and sustainability, as well as leveraging Malaysia’s position in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) to further expand their footprint in the region. — Bernama
