‘Look East Policy 2.0’ brings Malaysia and Japan together
Over the past twelve months, Malaysia has undergone a period of increased stability and economic growth through the government’s efforts to work more closely with regional partners, including Japan.
In the early 1980s, Malaysia’s ‘Look East Policy’ brought the country closer to Japan and successfully stimulated the economy. By 2020, Malaysia aims to become a high-income nation and the government’s ‘Look East Policy 2.0’ is further strengthening the country’s ties to Japan.
