The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia, The Honourable Dato’ Sri Saifuddin Abdullah will host the Minister of Foreign Affairs II of Brunei Darussalam, The Honourable Dato Seri Setia Haji Erywan bin Pehin Datu Pekerma Jaya Haji Mohd Yusof in conjunction with his working visit to Malaysia on 20-22 April 2022.

 

The Honourable Dato’ Sri Saifuddin and The Honourable Dato Seri Setia Haji Erywan are scheduled to meet and discuss cooperation following YAB Prime Minister’s Official Visit to Brunei Darussalam on 14-15 February 2022.

 

The Working Visit is also in conjunction with Malaysia’s hosting of The First Meeting of the Joint Malaysia-Brunei Darussalam Land Boundary Committee (Joint LBC). The Joint LBC signifies yet another important milestone to the special relations shared between both countries. Since both countries entered into cooperation on land boundary in 2012, the First Joint LBC is a reiteration of commitment by both sides in finalizing the Malaysia-Brunei Darussalam land boundary.

 

The Honourable Dato Seri Setia Haji Erywan is also scheduled to hold talks with the Senior Minister of Defence, The Honourable Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

 

In 2021, Brunei was Malaysia's 30th largest trading partner and the 6th largest within ASEAN with total trade amounting to RM8.03 billion (USD1.87 billion), a substantial increase of 70.4% percent, compared to the recorded value in 2020.

 

The visit will be undertaken in full compliance with the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) put in place by the authorities of Malaysia.
