Lahad Datu intrusion will not affect investor interest

SINGAPORE: The Lahad Datu intrusion by a armed group from the southern Philippines, will not affect investor interest in Malaysia or the Philippines, says an economist.

Dr Shane Oliver, head of investment strategy and chief economist of AMP Capital, said the intrusion had not changed his perception of Malaysia, especially when the relevant authorities were doing their best to resolve the matter.

“It looks more like a distraction rather than anything else,” he told Bernama.

Oliver was responding to a question on whether the intrusion by the armed group would turn away investors from Malaysia.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had also given an assurance on the establishment of a special security area in Sabah to safeguard the sovereignty and security of the state's east coast. Bernama
