Malaysia's open trade policy remains, including with the United States, says Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will remain an open trading nation, including with the United States, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Prime Minister said the collaboration between Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) and New York-based firm Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) is crucial to the country.

"We made it very clear that Malaysia must remain an open trading nation to investments. Therefore, the collaboration between MAHB and the GIP is critical for us. We as a government will support (the collaboration).

"That explains where our position vis-a-vis investments from overseas, in particular from the United States," he said during his keynote speech at the 47th American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) annual general meeting held at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur here on Tuesday (June 25).

Anwar, who is also Finance Minister, told the Dewan Rakyat that Blackrock, which has alleged links with Israel, would not be involved in the management of airports under MAHB.
