Malaysia, France to strengthen existing ties

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and France have agreed to strengthen existing cooperations and explore new ones in a move to boost the bilateral ties of both nations.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said both countries were on the same page to explore new cooperations in the fields of renewable energy, biotechnology and transportation.

"We look forward to receiving more French companies in Malaysia," he told reporters after a one-hour meeting with French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault yesterday.

Najib added his counterpart Ayrault had reassured Malaysia that deep understanding and the partnership between both countries would continue in the field of defence.

Malaysia also looked forward to receiving some of the acquisition that the country had made including the A400M aircraft and EC725 helicopters, said the prime minister.

On palm oil, Najib said Ayrault had told him that there would be no new tax on palm oil and it would be treated on the same basis with other vegetable oil in France.
