Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah and the Malaysian delegation arrived in Bangkok, Thailand for the 52nd ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting /Post Ministerial Conferences and Related Meetings (52nd AMM/PMC).

At the Plenary session, Malaysia emphasised the need to look into the industries of the future, the use of technology and innovation.
