Malaysia: PM Confident EU-Malaysia FTA Talks Will Resume by End of 2016

Malaysia is confident that EU-Malaysia free trade talks will resume by the end of 2016, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib stated during an official visit to Germany in late September. He addressed a group of German business leaders at a dialogue session, on the invitation of Chancellor Merkel. This follows earlier statements made by Malaysian Minister for International Trade Mustapa Muhamed that Brexit would not affect EU-Malaysia or EU-ASEAN free trade talks. A new Malaysian chief negotiator has also been appointed, Wan Suraya Wan Mohd Radzi, which means the Malaysian government has approved a new negotiating mandate allowing for trade talks to continue.
