Fostering Ties with Malaysia

Yazrin Syakhairi Mahlan, the new Trade Commissioner of the Consulate-General of Malaysia, paid a courtesy visit on Asia and Africa Committee Chairman Jonathan Lamport on 27 September. Yazrin introduced Malaysia’s potential growth in sectors such as sustainability, digitalization and trade, and said that the country was a strong supporter of the Belt and Road Initiative.

As Hong Kong was gradually easing social distancing and quarantine rules, both sides expressed their wishes for more face-to-face activities visits to help businesses better understand the rapidly growing Malaysia market and to strengthen connections between the regions.
