KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's visits abroad have generated potential investment amounting to RM431.18 billion from 2023 until last May.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Federal Territories) Dr Zaliha Mustafa said that the amount was  RM253.6 billion in 2023 and RM77.58 billion from January to May this year.

She said Anwar made 31 official and working visits to 19 countries from November 2022 to May 2024, including Saudi Arabia, Australia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, the Philippines, Indonesia and Japan.

Additionally, Germany, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Laos, China, Singapore, Thailand, Turkiye, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Qatar.

“This includes attending conferences and scheduled international meetings also attended by world leaders,” she said in a written reply on the Parliament's website.

The response was provided to Muhammad Fawwaz Mohamad Jan (PN-Permatang Pauh), who inquired about the details of the Prime Minister's official and unofficial visits abroad from 2022 to the present, as well as the amount of investments successfully brought into Malaysia as a result of these visits.

Zaliha added that the mission and purpose of the Prime Minister's official and working visits are to convince potential investors to invest in Malaysia, while also strengthening, deepening and expanding bilateral cooperation and fostering greater understanding between Malaysia and those countries.

According to Zaliha, Anwar's visits also aim to enhance and invigorate diplomatic relations and cooperation with the countries involved, thereby positioning Malaysia as a country that practices transparent and open economic principles.

As an example, she said the diplomatic relations and close cooperation between Malaysia and China, now reaching 50 years, have been demonstrated through the signing of memorandums of understanding and agreements in various economic sectors, which will have a positive impact on the country's economic development.
