The parties recognise the growth potential and investment opportunities between Malaysia and Indonesia, and are keen to maintain an active dialogue and streamlined communication channel for referrals of projects of mutual interest. They will also explore training and secondment opportunities in credit, risk underwriting, and documentation, on top of considering joint client outreach programmes to facilitate bilateral trade growth.
At the signing event, MEXIM was represented by President/Chief Executive Officer Arshad Ismail, while Indonesia Eximbank was represented by its Executive Director Riyani Tirtoso. The MoU signing ceremony was witnessed by Prime Minister of Malaysia Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim. Also present at the event was the Chairman of MEXIM Dato’ Azman Mahmud.
Commenting on the occasion, Arshad said: “MEXIM and Indonesia Eximbank share a relationship that we hope to take to greater heights as we value the opportunity to collaborate and strengthen the cooperation we have with them. I consider Indonesia Eximbank a particularly important partner and look forward to maintaining an active dialogue and communication channel for continued business and referral projects.”
Sharing her view on this MoU, Riyani said: “The MoU between Lembaga Pembiayaan Ekspor Indonesia/Indonesia Eximbank and MEXIM will enable the two institutions to overcome economic development challenges by providing market-oriented innovative products in a sustainable manner from economic, social and environmental aspects. This collaboration also aims to increase the capacity of both parties so that Indonesia and Malaysia are able to open wider market access, which is not only between these two countries, but we will also work together to unlock markets with other countries. Together, we will support business investment and remain resilient in a competitive market.”
