My Say: The need for closer Asean-EU cooperation

EUROCHAM Malaysia was glad to have met YB Liew Chin Tong, Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry during the 10th ASEAN-EU Business Summit in conjunction with the 45th Asean-EU Commemorative Summit, in Brussels and we look forward to engaging with the ministry to further bolster alliances.

My first task as deputy international trade and industry minister was to represent my minister, Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz, at the 10th Asean-EU Business Summit, in conjunction with the 45th Asean-EU Commemorative Summit, in Brussels. At the forum, I spoke alongside His Excellency Valdis Dombrovskis, an executive vice-president of the European Commission and also its trade commissioner.

Dombrovskis is the former prime minister of Latvia. As one of the executive vice-presidents of the European Commission — the executive wing of the European Union (EU) — he is responsible for “An Economy that Works for People”.

I draw attention to Dombrovskis’ fascinating job title to illustrate the need for trade to work for both his people and “my people”, the people of Malaysia and Asean. Before my session, the secretary-general of Asean, His Excellency Lim Jock Hoi, had called for an effort to build a middle-class society across Asean states.
