    The Minister requested MIBC to open a Malaysian consulate in Guwahati and start flight connectivity between Guwahati and Kuala Lumpur. “Though we are divided by boundaries, our roots are the same. It’s the heart to the heart connection we share and with the philosophy of Atithi Devo Bhava – the guest is god, we will work together in each other’s states at the industrial sectors,” he added.

    Terming the MoU as a historical milestone, Tan Sri Ir Kuna Sittampalam, president of MIBC said that Northeast can be the food basket for Malaysia as the country imports varieties of food items from India. He further said that apart from the historical perspective, a comprehensive business agreement between India and Malaysia was signed in 2011 and since then the trade between the two countries has increased from USD 8 billion to USD 17.24 billion in 2018-19.
