TASHKENT: Malaysia and Uzbekistan can collaborate to explore new areas of digitalisation and energy transition and equip their people with new knowledge in Artificial Intelligence (AI), says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He added that Malaysia and Uzbekistan could also establish cooperation in the halal, banking and food technology sectors.

"Of course, we have to be pragmatic. We're dealing with a very challenging world,” he said during a joint press conference with Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev here Friday (May 17)

Anwar said both countries could also collaborate to enhance their nation's education quality.

He shared that Malaysia’s top companies and conglomerates would participate in the High-Level Uzbekistan–Malaysian Business Forum at the Silk Road Samarkand Tourism Complex.

"Tomorrow, the leading players in the field with PETRONAS, EPF will participate. You're not just dealing with just any country but an important country,” he said.

Flying in from Kazakhstan, Anwar landed at the Tashkent International Airport at 2.15pm local time.

Uzbekistan is the last stop of Anwar’s official visit to three Central Asian countries. He had visited the Kyrgyz Republic and Kazakhstan earlier.

On Saturday, the Prime Minister will visit the Imam Hazrati Complex here.

From Tashkent, he will travel to Samarkand, where he is expected to address participants of the Uzbekistan-Malaysian Business Forum at the Silk Road Samarkand Tourism Complex. – Bernama
