This afternoon, I had a very successful meeting with my Indian counterpart, the Hon. Minister Anand Sharma, in New Delhi .

Malaysia-India-CECA-5 March 2010



India’s economy with her growing middle class of 250 million is expected to grow at no less than 8% annually over the next decade. This spells opportunities for Malaysian businesses especially in ICT, healthcare, infrastructure, food products and services.

During my recent official trip, 18 MoUs were signed between Malaysian and Indian companies. The potential value of investments is estimated at RM1.6 billion.

However, signing on the dotted line is only the start and initiatives must be seen through. Here is where MITI becomes the watchdog and will monitor the progress of these MoUs. Toward this end, MITI has started a...
