Interact with each other and prosper says Muhyiddin

PUTRAJAYA: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said it is of utmost importance for countries to interact with one another if they aspire to achieve development goals and prosperity.

No country or region could be an island unto itself, he said at a luncheon hosted for Commonwealth Partnership for Technology Management (CPTM) fellow emeritus, fellows and ministers participating at the Langkawi International Dialogue (LID) 2011 here today.

"Through exchanges of views on issues of common concern, our countries would be able to establish cooperation for mutual benefit, especially under the aegis of the Smart Partnership for Socio-Economic Transformation programme," he said.

Muhyiddin said that under this concept, everyone would reap benefits as new wealth would be created and shared by the partners concerned.

"The overriding objectives are that all partners involved will not be left out in the race to the proverbial pinnacle of success," he said.

The three-day forum was opened by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on Sunday. - BERNAMA
