NEW DELHI, Jan 12 (Bernama) -- Malaysia and India should enhance their cooperation in the information technology sector through better linkages and knowledge exchange, according to industry executives.

A group of senior Indian IT sector executives took part in an interaction with Parti Keadilan Rakyat president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the south Indian business hub of Bengaluru on Friday evening.

Senapathy Gopalakrishnan, chairman of Axilor Ventures and co-founder of leading IT services firm Infosys, gave a briefing at the meeting organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

It was suggested that IT sector players from the two countries should hold meetings every six months to develop closer contacts, a CII official told Bernama.

One area of further cooperation is how Malaysia can benefit from Karnataka's experience in building technology entrepreneurship.

Some of those attending the meeting were representatives of Indian companies doing business in Malaysia.

More Indian companies are keen to set up operations in Malaysia to serve the wider ASEAN market, the CII official said.

Earlier on Friday, Anwar called on Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy and the state's Deputy Chief Minister G. Parameshwara.
