Malaysia seeks trade, tourism relationships with Australian states
The President of the Malaysia Australia Business Council has urged the State Government of South Australia to establish its own office in Kuala Lumpur, rather than rely on its Singapore office to form business ties in the region. The State of Victoria opened a trade office in Malaysia two years ago to some success, and South Australia would do well with its own operation to organize trade missions and expand its local industries further in Southeast Asia.
South Australia, at the center and southern coast of the continent, has a small population but is rich in resources and has significant tourism and food sectors. It also hopes to become a regional leader in ‘green’ technology and renewable energy over the coming years. Malaysia Airlines already plans to increase the number of direct flights from KL to state capital Adelaide over the next six months, with a view to keeping them if demand increases.
