Najib speaks to major US fund managers

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who is on the last leg of his one-week working trip to California, started Wednesday by promoting Malaysia as a good prospect for investment to American fund managers managing US$4.5tril (RM18.77tril).

The Prime Minister said Malaysia was a good prospect and its economy was still growing fairly well despite the challenging global economic situation.

"Malaysia is a good prospect and under adverse conditions we are still able to perform.

"Moving forward, I still believe that our performance can continue with the political stability and Government policies.

"I know there is a lot of noise, but if you look beyond and deeper into Malaysia, we do have strong fundamentals. It is only a question of time before the markets realise it," he said as he addressed 16 fund managers from 11 organisations.

This is the first time San Francisco-based investors have been given access to the Prime Minister in a closed-door session.

San Francisco is the fourth stop of the Invest Malaysia 2016 Conversation Series by Bursa Malaysia after Hong Kong, Singapore and London.
