KOTA BAHARU, March 1 (BERNAMA) — ASEAN economic ministers (AEM) today wrapped up their two-day retreat here with a steady progress made towards implementing the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Blueprint, particularly key measures prioritised by member states.

We’d talked about NTBs, listened to reports on the progress of the economic integration, and spent a lot of time on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP),” International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed told reporters on the final day of the two-day 21st ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Retreat (AEM) here, Sunday. Mustapa, who chaired the retreat, said eliminating non-tariff barriers is very...

June 15, 2015 , by admin2
KUALA LUMPUR: The National Export Council has planned a roadmap to boost Malaysia’s competitiveness in the international market. The government-backed body held its first meeting in Putrajaya chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to put in place the comprehensive roadmap to enhance the nation’s exports amid uncertainties in the global market.
