KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak discussed the second wave of the Look East Policy 2.0 during a bilateral meeting with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe here, today.
According to an official, the collaborative linkages within the policy should fit Malaysia’s Vision 2020 and Japan’s aim of revitalising the country’s economy as well as strengthen engagement with ASEAN.
