EU hopes for wider collaboration with Malaysia, Asean and partners

The European Union (EU) is looking to Malaysia to play a bigger role in strengthening Asean-EU relations while urging for a wider scope of cooperation among members of the regional organisation with other partners in order to preempt future geopolitical and socio-economic problems.

Explaining the EU long term plans, its Ambassador to Malaysia, Michalis Rokas, feels now is the time for EU to stay the course in striving for a closer Asean-EU collaboration in many other sectors of interest to both sides.

"In 2025, Malaysia will take over as Asean chair. Together with the Ambassadors' of the EU Member States in Malaysia, we will engage at early stage with Wisma Putra to discuss what we can do together to address critical challenges and rising tensions," he said.

In addition, Malaysia has recently become a partner country in a regional project called ESIWA – Enhancing Security in and with Asia.
