Malaysia-Brunei to strengthen bilateral ties

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and Brunei would be strengthening their cooperation in the sectors of agriculture, information technology and communication, and taxation to further enhance their bilateral relations.

Both leaders, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, in a statement here today, expressed hope for both sides to finalise documents in these matters to enhance bilateral relations between the two countries.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is on a three-day working visit to Malaysia which begins today and the Annual Leaders’ Consultation is the most notable high level event between Malaysia and Brunei.

He is accompanied by several Brunei cabinet ministers and senior officials for the event.

The consultation has allowed both leaders to take stock and review the progress of bilateral relations in the past year, especially with regard to the implementation of the agreements reached between the two countries in the Exchange of Letters signed in 2009.

Najib also said both leaders have agreed to hold the 19th Annual Leaders’ Consultation in Brunei Darussalam next year.

At the same time, the prime minister hosted a luncheon in honour of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah’s visit which was held at his official residence, Seri Perdana, here today.

Accompanying Najib was his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and several ministers including International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Bank Negara Governor Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz.
