New Zealand and Malaysia

New Zealand has strong official, business and individual links with Malaysia, which is an influential member of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). It is one of the Southeast Asian countries best known to New Zealanders. There is a history of close and friendly links, stemming originally from Commonwealth ties, the aid and education-related Colombo Plan and shared security concerns.

The Malaysia Information Paper on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website provides political and economic overview of Malaysia and information on bilateral relations between New Zealand and Malaysia.
