PETALING JAYA: Businessman Robert Kuok is set to fly home to attend a government advisory council meeting next week, said Tun Daim Zainuddin.

In an exclusive interview with Nanyang Siang Pau, Daim, who heads the Council of Eminent Persons (CEP), said that he had personally spoken to Kuok over the telephone and confirmed that the businessman would arrive in Malaysia next week.

“Robert Kuok has extensive experience in business and finance. He is well-versed in the industries of commodities, real estate, hotel and tourism.

“Therefore, his suggestions are important. I can say that he is an all-rounder,” said Daim.

Kuok was named as one of the five members in the new CEP, three days after Pakatan Harapan toppled the Barisan Nasional government.

Daim also noted that Kuok, who now resides in Hong Kong, would not stay too long in Malaysia.

He said that PPB Group Bhd chairman Tan Sri Oh Siew Nam would attend meetings in Kuok’s absence.
