KUALA LUMPUR, July 27 -- Investors from Malaysia, New Zealand and United Arab Emirates (UAE) seeking to engage with strategic business partners in Australasia, Middle East and ASEAN now have a new avenue to do so.

A joint initiative between New Zealand Malaysia Business Association (NZMBA) and the Malaysian Business Council based in UAE (MBC,UAE) provides an avenue to establish high-level strategic business ties and help strengthen people-to-people contact. 

Founder and President of NZMBA Dave Ananth said the joint initiative will see both parties enhancing economic and investment activities amongst Malaysia, New Zealand and UAE markets.

"The bilateral NZMBA-MBC team serves as an influential platform for businesses in Malaysia, New Zealand and UAE to seek new opportunities and engage with strategic partners amongst the regions," he said in a statement to Bernama.

He said a cooperative agreement was signed by him and Chairman of MBC, UAE, Fahmy Ansara to provide opportunities for both sides to jointly promote halal products, Shariah finance and infrastructure projects in New Zealand. 

“We also agreed to seek greater collaboration in New Zealand’s halal certification for meat and dairy commodities for the purpose of export to Malaysia and Middle East market, besides infrastructure projects involving the government and private sector in the island nation,” he added. 

Meanwhile, Fahmy said the joint initiative involves exchange of high value strategic networking, technologies, and knowledge sharing between both parties.

The cooperative agreement invites all Malaysian Business Councils (MBCs) worldwide to join and seize the opportunities available. 

NZMBA and MBC, UAE discussed on deliverables and preparations for the World Expo 2021 which will be held in Dubai, UAE from October 2021- March 2022. 

Both parties also deliberated on plans to hold a hybrid UAE-NZ-Malaysia Business exhibition which will coincide with both the World Expo 2021 and the FieldDays Expo 2022/2023, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agricultural event for cutting edge technology and innovation.
