A Kuala Lumpur-Chennai Business Council will be formed soon to promote business and culture between the two cities.
Deputy Minister of Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Datuk M. Saravanan said the council would be headed by the Federal Territories Development Foundation with members comprising businessmen from Kuala Lumpur and Chennai.
“The main objective of the council is to implement various projects that can promote culture, education and the traditions of the Malaysian communities in Chennai and at the same time introduce their culture here,” he said.
“We will also look after the welfare of the Indian workers so that they can carry out their business smoothly,” he said. The city, which was formerly known as Madras, is popularly known as India’s Kollywood because of its dynamic film making industry which has a large following in Malaysia.
