Tajuk/Title  	: 	MESSAGE BY THE HONOURABLE THE PRIME 
			MINISTER OF MALAYSIA DR. MAHATHIR 
			MOHAMED ( TO BE READ BY H.E. 
			THE MALAYSIAN AMBASSADOR) 




President of JAMECA, President of MAJECA, Members of JAMECA/MAJECA, Ladies
and Gentlemen.

It is indeed a pleasure for me to send this message to the Sixth Joint
Meeting of JAMECA and MAJECA. I would also like to take the opportunity to
congratulate the Associations on this auspicious occasion.

I have observed with keen personal interest the progress achieved by the
Associations since their inauguration in 1977, especially in promoting
greater economic exchanges between Malaysia and Japan. Malaysia always
recognises the need for mutual understanding and cooperation in
strengthening economic relations between herself and her trading partners,
including Japan. I am very happy to note that Japan shares our views.

During my visit to Japan recently, I had urged Japan's industrial leaders
to step up the transfer of technology through more investments in Malaysia
as part of the long term efforts to further strengthen the relationship
between our two countries. I emphasised not only on the heart-to-heart
diplomacy, but also the mind-to-mind technology transfer, and hand-in-hand
cooperation in building the existing relationship into a mutually
beneficial and long lasting one.

Malaysia is very grateful to the Japanese Government for agreeing to
Malaysia's request for a special loan amounting to 50 billion Yen in
addition to its pledge of 21 billion Yen for the Ninth Yen Credit. This
agreement was most significant in the context of our cooperation in the
field of economic development.

Malaysia has been receiving yen credits from the Japanese Government since
the mid sixties. The special loan extended to us will be significant in
view of the difficulties faced by us due to the world economic recession.

It is my hope that Japan will continue to extend her assistance and
cooperation to Malaysia in our development efforts. In this regard, the
Associations can continue to play a very important role in our bilateral
economic relations.

I wish this Sixth Joint Meeting every success.

Thank you.
