On 9th October 2009, we were invited to attend a dinner function organised by The Malaysia Association of America (MAA) to celebrate its 25th Anniversary and 52nd Year of Independence of Malaysia. It was attended by about 800 Malaysians (many of whom have set up homes in New York) and some New Yorkers. I am proud to say that they are still very patriotic as we can see from the decors of the occasion with the “Wau Bulan” (kite) from Kelantan, the fashion show of Malaysian costumes with “kain songket” and the lion dance, which had the lion head decorated with a batek design – the first of its kind!

Statement by
THE RIGHT HONOURABLE WEE CHOO KEONG,
MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT OF MALAYSIA

on Agenda Item 104:
Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice

and Agenda Item 105:
International Drug Control

of the Third Committee
of the 64th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

New York, 8 October 2009

547s

*For the unabridged version of my Statement in pdf, please click here.

Thank you Mr. Chairman for granting to me the opportunity to address the Third Committe of the UN today on the subjects of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice and International Drug Control.  First and foremost, I would like to put on record that Malaysia is proud that you have been elected Chairman of the Third Committee of the UN.

Mr Chairman,

It is Malaysia’s position that investment by countries in their basic crime prevention efforts brings about benefits that can extend from the local to even the international level. However, as we expand the scope of this investment, continued international co-operation in the forms of exchange of information, capacity-building, technology-transfer as well as confidence-building measures need to be enhanced to allow countries to gain trust and capability. This will also allow countries to better integrate their work in more practical and operational aspects.
