Malaysian prince seeks closer UAE ties

posted on 07/06/2003: 722 views


The common thread that holds the UAE and Malaysia together should bring the two countries closer in their march towards a shared future. This was the vision aired by Prince Naquiyuddin ibnl Sultan Ja'afar, Crown Prince of Malaysia's Negri Sembilan state, yesterday, as he capped a brief working visit to the UAE. "One of the inspirations I have from the UAE is that we share the same Islamic heritage. Both countries also share a long experience with rulers and sultans. These similarities should bring the people of the UAE and Malaysia together," said Prince Ja'afar, who headed a four-man delegation.



Both countries, he said, also have a federal system of government based on constitutional monarchy and are similarly blessed with mineral resources, not to mention eating the same 'halal' food. Malaysia produces 660,000 barrels of oil per day and is one of the world's biggest producers of liquefied natural gas.



In 2002, Malaysia received 131,779 tourists from the Middle East, up 14.8 per cent from 2001, of which 14,124 were from the UAE. On an average, tourists from the Middle East stay for 10 days in Malaysia and spend US$862.6 per trip. This translates into total tourism receipts estimated at US$6.78 billion. (The Gulf News)
