Islamabad, The Gulf Observer: Acting High Commissioner of Malaysia, Mr Deddy Faisal Ahmad Salleh and his wife, Madam Noor Emilia Alias hosted a reception at Islamabad Marriott Hotel on 18 August 2022 in honor of the Alumni of Malaysia Technical Cooperation Program (MTCP).

The purpose of the reception is to promote continuous engagements and foster a long-lasting and strong bond of friendship with all government officials who have attended the MTCP courses in Malaysia.

It is also to establish closer relations and strengthen networking between the High Commission of Malaysia in Islamabad and former MTCP participants, particularly from Pakistan.

Malaysia attaches great importance to its bilateral relations with Pakistan. The long standing bilateral relations and close cooperation between our two brotherly countries have covered various areas in trade, investment, education, tourism, culture, defense and technical assistance on human capital development.

Mr Deddy Faisal said that the Malaysian Government aims to encourage more future participation from Pakistani officials in the MTCP, as it would not only be beneficial for the bilateral relations but it would also assist in the career development of the participants.

He also stated that Malaysia’s trade relations with Pakistan have been encouraging. In 2021, the bilateral trade has grown to 36.3% and our total trade is worth 1.901 billion US Dollars.

A majority of this total trade volume is contributed by the export of Palm Oil and palm Oil Based Agriculture Products which account to 51.9% share of this total volume.
