PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will continue to work with Swedish authorities to enhance road safety in the country, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
He said that the collaboration with Sweden is being undertaken by the Transport Ministry through the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (Miros).
"In fact, we are studying the nine recommendations put forward by the Academic Expert Group in their high-level report related to building safer vehicles through advanced technologies in vehicle construction and infrastructure design," said Dr Wee in a statement on his Facebook page on Saturday (July 2).
This follows a discussion held with Swedish Infrastructure Minister Tomas Eneroth.
Dr Wee said the Infrastructure Ministry had funded the Academic Expert Group whose recommendations formed the 2020 Stockholm Declaration on road safety, which was then endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly resolutions in August 2020.
