Forging better relations

Based on amity, goodwill and understanding, the bilateral relationship started and continues to strengthen to present day. Both the countries are members of the UN and the Non-aligned Movement where there is a strong collaboration and cooperation between the 2 governments and their people respectively. To date, Malaysia remains as one of the major trading partners with strong investment, tourism and trade between them.
