Kuala Lumpur: Branding Bangladesh as an emerging economic powerhouse in South Asia, Malaysian Youth and Sports Minister YB Encik Khairy Jamaluddin said his country wants to play a part in Bangladesh’s ‘next chapter’ development success story, reports UNB.

“This is a new Bangladesh which has demonstrated that it is ready to bring growth to the next level. Bangladesh deserves it. Malaysia wants to play a part in your next chapter success stories,” he said.

The youth minister, who is very young himself, made the remark at a cultural and dinner programme at the Royale Chulan Hotel on Saturday night as part of the ongoing three-day Showcase Bangladesh-2014.

Jamaluddin found present Bangladesh as a new and confident for a brighter future and said Showcase Bangladesh is actually a wonderful opportunity for Bangladesh for its branding in Malaysia and it will help Malaysia reframe the relationships.

He said time has come to come out from the tendency of looking Bangladesh-Malaysia relationship through a very small and narrow definition. “If we continue to frame our relationship in a traditional way, we think we’ll miss the wonderful and lucrative opportunities that exist between the two countries.”

Laying emphasis on people-to-people contact, the Malaysian minister said both the countries have lot of young people who are willing to drive two countries forward.
“We’ve so much commonalities apart from Muslim majority countries. We’re both proud countries with proud cultures and heritage. We can build a stronger people-to-people contact,” he said.

Jamaluddin said the concept that Bangladesh is a source of cheap labour has changed completely. “Bangladesh has come a long way. It’s no longer a source of cheap labour rather it’s a source of valuable human resources that is contributing to the growth of entire region.”

Branding Bangladesh as a lucrative market, the Malaysian youth minister said they want to invest in infrastructure, telecommunications and utility sectors as demand for those are absolutely tremendous.
