TOKYO: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has reassured Japan's top industry leaders that his administration will be business friendly.

"That's why we need your cooperation. Should you run into problems, please tell us and we will give due consideration and try to resolve these," he said during a dialogue with some 20 Japan's industry leaders early Tuesday (June 12) morning.

He hoped that coupled with Japanese technology, Malaysia could achieve what it had originally set out under Vision 2020.

"The objectives of Vision 2020 are far from accessible to the Malaysian people but we hope with the right kind of policies, we hope to achieve this - not by 2020 but later," he said.

The dialogue was hosted jointly by the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Japan Business Federation, Japan Association of Corporate Executives, Japan Foreign Trade Council and Japan-Malaysia Economic Association.

Among those who attended the dialogue were representatives from Panasonic, Hitachi, Mitsubishi and Sumitomo Corporations.

Earlier, he had also met Takasago Thermal Engineering Co CEO Atsushi Ouchi.

Dr Mahathir had said that besides revitalising the Look East Policy, he was looking to discuss investments during his first working trip overseas as the country's seventh Prime Minister.
