Both countries are committed to promoting sustainable economic development and driving green growth.

“Penjana Kapital, Indies Capital Partners and AC Ventures are major players in the investment landscape in Indonesia and Malaysia. Working together can also strengthen economic relations between Indonesia and Malaysia and promote a more interconnected and prosperous ASEAN region. The key to realising this potential is fostering a spirit of cooperation and prioritising the interests of the two nations,”
