The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today held bilateral talks with the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato Seri MohdNajib bin Tun Abdul Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia. At the joint press statement after the talks, the Prime Minister called for stronger defence cooperation between the two countries, “including for advancing maritime security and strengthening disaster response in our region.” 

The two leaders jointly inaugurated the “Torana Gate” at Little India in Kuala Lumpur. This gate takes inspiration from the Torana Gate at the Sanchi Stupa. Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that his visit to Malaysia has been marked by a number of historic events, and the joint inauguration of the Torana Gate is one of them. He said the Gate is not just a sculpture, but a link between two countries, which highlights their cultural ties. The Prime Minister recalled Lord Buddha, who had, centuries ago, delivered his message of peace across Asia. 

The Prime Minister had an interaction with leaders of Corporate Malaysia, for strengthening economic ties. The Prime Minister said that India is the fastest growing economy in the world today, and with a stable polity, offers ample scope for investment. The Prime Minister said that Malaysian CEOs have experience and expertise in areas where India has a requirement, and therefore, it is a perfect match. Malaysian CEOs expressed interest in several sectors of the Indian economy, including food processing, oil and gas, and aviation.
