Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a three day visit to Malaysia where he will be attending the two major events, the ASEAN-India Summit and East Asia Summit. He was welcomed by the High Commissioner of India to Malaysia T S Tirumurti.
The news that was tweeted on Modi twitter account “Reached Kuala Lumpur. Today’s programmes include ASEAN Business & Investment Summit, 13th ASEAN-India Summit & one-to-one meetings.”
Modi had made a mark to all the countries he had visited. There is humongous excitement amongst locals and Indians who are residing there to catch a glimpse of PM Narendra Modi and meet him. The desire of people was witnessed when at least 50 people, mostly ethnic Indians waited patiently outside the Renaissance Hotel, where PM Modi is staying, hoping to see him with their mobile phone cameras held high to get that quick snap of the Indian premier.
PM Modi will address the East Asia Summit tomorrow. He will also address the Indian diaspora tomorrow.
PM Modi hold news of talks with top leadership of Malaysia, including his counterpart Najib Razak, on ways to ramp up bilateral cooperation in a range of areas that includes defence and security and take the strategic ties to a new level. The two sides are likely to sign a number of MoUs.
ASEAN is one of the world’s fastest growing regions and both sides are likely to seek greater economic engagement besides expanding cooperation in areas such as maritime security including freedom of navigation, drug trafficking and cyber crime. ASEAN is India’s fourth largest trading partner and India is the sixth largest trading partner for the ten members grouping.
