Malaysia to look at South Korea's nuclear technology
"There is a need to have a follow-up action and therefore we propose the creation of a Malaysia-Republic Korea Business Council so that the private sector between the two countries can explore and discuss ways and means to enhance partnership between them," he said during a joint press conference with South Korea President, Lee Myung-Bak here.
Malaysia is also looking into the strength that Korean companies have in green technology, renewable technology as well as alternative technology, he said.
Both countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) late last year on the Exchange of Technical Information and Cooperation in Nuclear and Radiation Safety.
At their bilateral meeting earlier on Friday, both leaders shared the view that nuclear energy could play an important role as a safe, sustainable and less polluting source of energy.
Lee and Najib had also agreed to further cooperate on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy as agreed upon in the 2009 MoU.
