PETALING JAYA: Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia Vanu Gopalu Menon paid a courtesy call on Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong on Tuesday (Sep 15).
The Transport Minister said that he and Vanu discussed a host of issues needing attention in order for both countries to continue its people-to-people exchanges as soon as possible, in spite of the continuing pandemic concerns.
“The closely-linked business communities on both sides urgently need to be able to commute back and forth soon with stringent SOPs in place.
“Our health authorities will be speaking soon to iron out the agreements on the SOPs and move forward. Soon, we hope to announce an air traffic bubble with Singapore and other bilateral partners, ” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (Sept 15).
He added that both of them updated one another on the ongoing discussions for the Malaysia-Singapore High-Speed Rail 2.0 project, as the Dec 31 deadline to ink the bilateral agreement loomed.
“The successful signing of the Johor Baru-Woodlands RTS Link agreement on 30 July reflects a mutual commitment, ” said Dr Wee.
