PETALING JAYA: The Kuala Lumpur Business Club (KLBC), which was on a trip to meet senior Singaporean government officials and business leaders over the week, hopes for better ties with the island-republic following the end of the visit.

KLBC president Datuk Rohana Mahmood expressed optimism that the visit succeeded in deepening ties between Malaysia and Singapore and strengthened friendships.

“The main aim of the trip was to discover joint opportunities for sustainable economic recovery,” she said, adding that there were opportunities to be found in reciprocal investments, intensification of relations and enhanced cooperation aimed at stimulating business links.

The KLBC delegation, which was in Singapore from Nov 10 to Nov 12, held high-level discussions with government officials such as Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam and officials from Temasek Holdings Pte Ltd.

Among business leaders, the delegation met with DBS Bank Ltd chairman Koh Boon Hwee, GK Goh Holdings Ltd managing director Goh Yew Lin and Far East Organisation chief executive officer Philip Ng.
