Q&A with Japan's Shinzo Abe

Q: What can Japan do to support Malaysia's goal of becoming a high-income nation by 2020? How can the long-standing cordial relations between Malaysia and Japan be enhanced? Japan has been experiencing economic difficulties for a while - what is Japan's advice to Malaysia, which has seen its currency affected due to the crude oil price fall and the slower growth rate of advanced economies?

I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to Malaysia to be the Asean Chair, when the East Asia Summit (EAS) celebrates its 10th anniversary. In this historical year, I am delighted and honoured to visit Malaysia, which is my third visit as the Prime Minister of Japan, after 2007 and 2013.
