PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will present its views and stance on, and commitment to, road safety that will align with United Nations (UN) goals, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
The Transport Minister said he will be delivering this message at the high-level meeting of the UN General Assembly on Global Road Safety.
Dr Wee said the theme of the meeting this year is "The 2030 horizon for road safety: Securing a decade of action and delivery".
"At the same time, we will be holding several special discussions with panellists from the world over throughout the meeting," he said on Facebook on Thursday (June 30) after meeting with Malaysia's permanent representative to the UN Datuk Syed Mohamad Hasrin Tengku Hussin and his deputy Azril Aziz in New York.
Also at the meeting were Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research chairman Prof Dr Wong Shaw Voon and Transport Ministry Land Transport Division senior principal assistant secretary Mohd Kamal Hisham Abu Bakar.
"Syed Mohamad Hasrin has been instrumental in arranging the Malaysian delegation's participation in the UN high-level meeting," Dr Wee added.
