The ASEAN countries are keen on increasing bilateral investments with Qatar through their business communities, Malaysia's Ambassador to Qatar HE Dato' Ahmad Fadil Bin Shamsuddin has said.
Speaking during the celebration of the 51st anniversary of the establishment of ASEAN on Wednesday, the Malaysian envoy underlined the impact of the state visits of the Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore last year.
He said the proposed high-level visits to Vietnam and the Philippines this year will also further enhance opportunities for the development of partnership between Qatar and the regional bloc.
Similarly, the Malaysian ambassador conveyed the interest of the ASEAN to deepen its cooperation with international partners, including the GCC.
ASEAN's official partnership with Qatar is through the GCC.
Ambassador Fadil said Qatar plays an important role in connecting these two regions through its engagement fostering synergies between ASEAN and the GCC.
