KUALA LUMPUR – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (pic) has expressed hope that Malaysia’s newly appointed heads of diplomatic missions would adopt fresher approaches to attract foreign investments back to Malaysia.

In a Facebook post, Anwar said he received a courtesy call in Putrajaya from Malaysia’s new heads of diplomatic missions yesterday.

“I wished them all the best in their endeavour and hoped they can raise the country’s name to a higher level with regard to foreign policy direction,” he said, according to Bernama.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah presented the letters of appointment to 11 heads of Malaysian diplomatic missions at Istana Negara on Dec 2.

Among those who met Anwar yesterday were Ambassador to Vietnam Datuk Tan Yang Thai, Ambassador to Germany Dr Adina Kamarudin, Ambassador to Senegal Datuk Zainal Izran Zahari, Ambassador to Kazakhstan Mohd Adli Abdullah, and Ambassador to Laos Edi Irwan Mahmud.
