H.E. Dr. Makio Miyagawa had an illustrious five and-a-half year term as Ambassador of Japan to Malaysia. During his term, there were many high-level exchanges and visits that have kept Malaysia-Japan relationships on a firm footing. Japan remains no. 1 foreign investor in Malaysia. Inspite of the global economic slowdown and geopolitical tensions, Malaysia-Japan business relations continued to grow as new sectors and industries open-up possibilities arising from Industry 4.0. This was especially given a boost when Tun Dr. Mahathir returned as Prime Minister in 2018. The rejuvenation of the Look East Policy brought Malaysia-Japan ties to new heights, as evidenced through the establishment of a Japanese University branch campus in Kuala Lumpur, Japanese assistance through the issuance of yen – demoninated bonds, collaboration in the areas of transportation modes and in the defence fields, amongst others.

MAJECA extends its warmest greetings and best wishes to H.E. Dr. Makio Miyagawa on his successful tour of duty in Malaysia.
