MITI Free Trade Briefing

The Ministry of International Trade and Industry briefed FCCM members on free trade agreements, with the Trans-Pacific Partnership at the top of the agenda. The next round of talks of this major trade agreement is being held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

MITI officials included J. Jayasiri, Deputy Secretary General (Strategy & Monitoring) on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) while other issues regarding trade, including the much-publicised reduction of car tariffs in Malaysia, were open for discussion.
