Today spells a new chapter in Malaysia – Ukraine ties as the visit by President Petro Poroshenko is not only his first official visit but also the first of a Ukrainian president to Malaysia.
From today’s discussions, we took note that the bilateral trade between our two countries can be elevated to that of a much higher level and we agreed that we should speed up the establishment of the Joint Trade Commission to facilitate collaboration in trade and investment.
We agreed that there are good opportunities for Malaysian companies to take part in airport management, highway construction and toll management as well as healthcare.
With regards to MH17, Malaysia and Ukraine remain committed to seek the truth and justice for the families of the innocent victims who lost their lives.
President Poroshenko’s visit has opened many doors for Malaysia and Ukraine to enhance our mutually beneficial relationship and I look forward to working together in that aspect.
