ABLC 2016 - THE INTERACTION BETWEEN TWO PRIME MINISTERS

The conclave had the rare distinction of being addressed by The Honorable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato' Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, who was joined live over a video conference by The Honorable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi.

The Malaysian Prime Minister spoke about the flourishing Indian diaspora in Malaysia and their continued contribution in building the Malaysia of today and the future. “As Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi, remarked in his 2015 visit to Malaysia, “India is not confined to its territory. India also exists in every Indian in every part of the world.” This has been strongly demonstrated by the Indian community in Malaysia, in letter and in spirit, towards the advancement of ties between our two nations. The Indian and Malaysian business communities have been the backbone of this trade and cooperation between our two nations”, said the Malaysian Prime Minister.

In a very interesting interaction between the two Prime Ministers, the Malaysian PM congratulated his Indian counterpart for being a bold reformist and wished him luck as India moves towards taking more concrete steps in reforming its economy.
