PETALING JAYA: Malaysia and Singapore's close friendship will continue to allow new opportunities for collaboration, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister said he is looking forward to working together with Singapore on the multi-modal transport sectors.

“I received a warm courtesy call from Mr Vanu Gopala Menon, the Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia.

“I gave my assurance that Malaysia is committed to ensuring our joint projects progress well, including the Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link project in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, ” he said in a Facebook post on Friday (May 15).

Dr Wee had received a courtesy call from Vanu Gopala at his office in Putrajaya.

Dr Wee said he was also thankful to receive Singapore's acknowledgement that Malaysia has been committed to reducing congestion at ports and keeping the supply chain environment moving since the start of the movement control order (MCO) so that all essential goods can reach the regional neighbours unhindered.
