Malaysia and Japan to explore new frontiers of cooperation

TOKYO: Malaysia and Japan will take their cooperation to a new level, with specific measures and targets in the areas of environment and green technology.

A "Japan-Malaysia Cooperation Initiative for Environment and Technology" has been agreed to by both governments, in a joint statement to undertake this "new frontier" as well as other areas.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the Look East Policy had served the country well for 28 years and it was now time to take the bilateral ties to another level and explore new areas of cooperation.

"We will be working together in the areas of green technology, renewable energy technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology and information and communications technology," he said on the second day of his official visit to Japan Monday.

Najib was speaking at a joint press conference with his Japanese counterpart Yukio Hatoyama after signing a joint statement based on discussions at a bilateral meeting here.
