Malaysia sees ‘upward trend’ in ties with VN

(31-08-2009)

Malaysian Ambassador to Viet Nam Lim Kim Eng spoke to the Viet Nam News on the occasion of Malaysia’s 52nd National Day today.

 
Ambassador Lim Kim Eng  

Malaysia saw a leadership change in April. What is the new prime minister’s "1Malaysia" concept?

The Honourable Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak was sworn into office as the sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia on April 3 after the retirement of his precedessor, Tun Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi. Since taking office, the new Prime Minister has mooted the concept of "1Malaysia: People First, Performance Now" as a national aspiration to unite all Malaysians, irrespective of race, or creed, and rally them to work as a team to move Malaysia forward to a higher level of development. This is not a new concept but a continuation of efforts since my country’s independence 52 years ago. It is therefore aimed at nation-building and unity given that Malaysia is a plural society comprised of different races, religions and cultures. In addition, the theme of "People First, Peformance Now" is focused on the welfare of the Malaysian people or "rakyat" and the public sector to deliver services more efficiently and effectively for the benefit of the country and people.

Are you satisfied with the progress of the bilateral relations between Viet Nam and Malaysia during your past two years as ambassador?

I am fortunate to be in Viet Nam at a rather exciting time when Viet Nam has made strides in national development and had a good impact at the international level. My arrival here in 2007 coincided with Viet Nam’s entry into the WTO, record economic growth rates and record high level of foreign investment. I believe these are a result of far-sighted policies instituted by a capable and effective leadership, both at the Party and governmental level, coupled with a dynamic business community and a young and industrious population. Viet Nam’s friendly and pragmatic conduct of foreign relations that has also boosted its international profile.

Malaysia as a fellow ASEAN country congratulates Viet Nam on its tremendous progress that has a positive impact on the ASEAN region and the neighbouring countries. While our bilateral relations are on the upward trend, marked by increased economic co-operation in trade, investment and tourism and frequent exchanges of visits at all levels and people-to-people contacts, there is still room to enhance existing areas of co-operation. Despite the global crisis, I am positive that the Malaysian business community remains confident of Viet Nam’s economic potential.

Malaysian businesses have invested in new urban areas, water treatment and power plants, and transport infrastructure. But Malaysia is also known for its agricultural development. What are the prospects for co-operation there?

In this regard, following the working visit of the Malaysian agriculture minister to Ha Noi in October 2008, both sides are looking into prospects for co-operation in the agricultural sector, including rice cultivation, fisheries and aquaculture. In terms of rice cultivation, Malaysia is only about 70 per cent self-sufficient in rice and plans to grow more rice in the vast areas in East Malaysia. We certainly would like to co-operate and learn from Viet Nam being the world’s second leading producer of rice. Malaysia could perhaps exchange and share experience in agricultural management and development with Viet Nam for mutual benefit through both bilateral and ASEAN channels. Malaysia could aslo offer technical assistance through the Malaysian Technical Co-operation Programme (MTCP) to modernise the agricultural sector.

What is the Malaysian Technical Co-operation Programme and how has Viet Nam benefited?

As mentioned above, the Malaysian Technical Co-operation Programme first launched in 1980, underscores Malaysia’s commitment to promote South-South co-operation through the sharing of Malaysia’s development experience with other developing countries. The MTCP focuses on technical co-operation through short and long term training courses in various fields such as finance, banking, ICT, public administration, agriculture, poverty alleviation and investment promotion in selected institutes or training centres in Malaysia. MTCP assistance also includes study visits and provision of experts to specific development projects.
