"LACAC had pledged support from all its member states for Malaysia to be re-elected in Part lll of the ICAO council and Malaysia is grateful for the support," the Transport Minister said in a Facebook post on Saturday (Oct 1).
Later, he met Nigeria Aviation Minister Senator Haei Sirika and Eswatini Public Works Minister Ndlaluhlaza Ndwandwe.
"I shared with them that Malaysia was happy to provide training to other member states through the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) and customise training modules that suit their needs," he said.
Dr Wee also met South Africa's Deputy Transport Minister Lydia Sindisiwe Chikunga in a bilateral meeting.
