Malaysia can gain a lot from French innovation, says Dr Wee

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia can leverage the know-how of French companies in the transport, logistics and aviation sectors to its benefit, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister, who attended a dialogue with representatives of French corporations with factories and investments in Malaysia, said the government welcomed innovative and technological collaboration.

"France is a highly industrialised nation, known for its long and storied history in automobile design and manufacturing, along with its world-renowned achievements in its rail transportation, aviation and marine industries.

"Our country can learn a lot from France's leading standards in these fields," he said in a Facebook post on Monday (April 12).

Dr Wee was invited by the French Ambassador to Malaysia Roland Galharague to attend the dialogue.

Other representatives who attended the dialogue included corporate leads from Airbus, Thales, Safran and Dassault Aviation.

"Through these engagements, we can strengthen our cooperation in the aviation, transport, and logistics sectors as we complement each other to create a win-win situation," he added.

The dialogue session was held at the ambassador's official residence.
