A report from ScandAsia.comhas stated the two countries signed a MuO on agricultural cooperation on 22 September. The aim is to promote both nations and their produce and develop their cooperation in the agricultural sectors. This is a significant step for Malaysia as it a takes steps to becoming a modern dairy and poultry producing country.
Danish minister Larsen is quoted to say that 'Malaysia wants to be able to provide its very large food industry with fresh milk. And while we can export fresh milk all the way to Malaysia, we can sell knowledge about everything from stall facilities to the processing and transport of milk."
"We want a long-term co-operation with Malaysia, and we are now starting a partnership that I am sure both countries will benefit greatly from."
The co-operation agreement between the two nations is concerned with the transportation and cooling of milk and overall hygiene standards, and a number of Danish companies have been invited to Malaysia next year to visit prospective co-operation partners and authorities.
