Guan Eng leads MoF team to Japan to meet investors, senior govt officials

Author:   |    Publish date:


KUALA LUMPUR: Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng led a delegation from the Ministry of Finance (MoF) on a roadshow to Japan to meet and discuss with Japanese investors and senior government officials over three days. 

The trip was to promote Malaysia as a stable and high-potential investment destination, according to an MoF statement released on Friday.
 
“It was also aimed at giving the international investing community confidence to take part in the forthcoming samurai bond issuance valued at 200bil yen (RM7.6bil) and guaranteed by the Japan Bank Investment Corporation (JPIC),” it said. 

The roadshow began on Feb 6 and among the 20 participants were Treasury secretary-general, Datuk Ahmad Badri Mohd Zahir, Treasury deputy secretary-general, Datuk Siti Zauyah Md Desa, and assistant governor of Bank Negara Malaysia Marzunisham Omar.
 
MoF said the roadshow was organised by Daiwa Markets Ltd (in collaboration with Affin Hwang Investment Bhd), HSBC Bank Malaysia Bhd, and Mizuho Bank (Malaysia) Bhd, as co-lead arrangers appointed by MoF for the bond’s issuance. 

According to Lim, international investors are confident in Malaysia’s economic potential as well as the current Government’s ability to drive the nation’s economy forward. 

“Malaysia continues to be regarded as an attractive investment destination by investors. What more with the government’s commitment to the Competency, Accountability, and Transparency (CAT) principles in its governance under the leadership of Prime Minister, YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, an international statesman well-known and much respected in Japan,” he said in the statement. 

Lim added they were  confident that their investments will be used to grow Malaysia’s economy to the fullest. 

Lim also met Japanese Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Mr Taro Aso; and adviser to the Prime Minister and Chairman of the National Public Safety Commission, Shinya Izumi. 

He conveyed the Malaysian Government’s appreciation towards the Japanese Government’s willingness to guarantee the Malaysian Samurai Bond via JBIC to reduce the interest cost of the loan. 

“The Japanese Government not only facilitated the bond’s issuance in a short span of time, they also opened up potential trade opportunities in other areas, according to the MoF. 

“Their meeting also discussed future directions in the relationship between the two countries, and opportunities to increase collaboration and investment in various strategic areas.

“The long-held close relationship and cooperation between the two Governments is expected to develop further through this trip and deliver a positive impact for all Malaysians. It is hoped that the relationship between the two countries 

will attain great heights to that when the Look East policy was first introduced by Dr Mahathir, where Japan played a major role in Malaysia’s economic development at that time,” the MoF statement said.

stockraider To sum up why msia should borrow from Japan leh ??

The current msia borrowing rate in usd is about 5% pa where the usd risk free rate is about 3% pa loh....!!

Why borrowing from Jap govt is beneficial leh ??

The cost of borrowing on USD 7 billion or rm 28.5 billion will cost the country about 1.42 billion of interest pa loh...!!

If u borrow from the jap govt in yen...u get fine rates as low as 0.5% to 1.0% pa....this will cost the country about rm 285m interest pa basing on rm 28.5 billion loan u save the country rm 1.13 billion pa mah....!!

But what are the risk leh ??
Risk of Appreciating YEN loh....!!
Mismatch of currency earnings loh....bcos msia earn mainly usd....but u pay ur loan and interest in yen mah...!!

But for rm 1.13 billion savings pa & yen already appreciated alot....raider think it is a worthwhile risk to take loh...!!

U also know the risk mah....!!

But what are the risk leh ??

Mismatch of currency earnings loh....bcos msia earn mainly usd....but u pay ur loan and interest in yen mah...!!

But for rm 1.13 billion savings pa & yen already appreciated alot....raider think it is a worthwhile risk to take loh...!!

The rm 1.13 billion saving pa is your margin of safety or current advantage mah...!!

Posted by 如鱼得水 > Feb 9, 2019 03:21 PM | Report Abuse

U got to buy Yen with US$, all rate calculated based on US$ conversion.. this is just common sense... when Yen appreciate, the rate of exchange would b higher, unless ringgit also appreciate... world currency is US$, u cant run away from that..
09/02/2019 3:27 PM
calvintaneng It is not LGE going to Japan to borrow 7 Billion $ lah

He is acting on behalf of Tun Dr M

If Malaysia got Extra Liquidity it will be good for both Real Estate & Stock markets

The Japanese are pissed of by Koreans harping about compensation for atrocities of 2WW

In Robert Kuok Memoirs he said the Jap has built and gave 2 free Ships to MISC in its inception. This was remorse shown. And they still owe a debt to all. Only thing is they want you to ask compensation without hurting their pride overmuch

the rate of appreciation of Yen n ringgit is diff.. Yen appreciate much more due to they are used as safe guide like Gold.. but ringgit would not appreciate much or might not even appreciate even US$ drop due to our economy n debts
09/02/2019 3:37 PM
probability if your currency value movement direction prediction is so accurate...

then countries need not invest on businesses...just invest on the right currency

how certain you are yen will appreciate against dollar/ringgit?

This is the most stupid thing repeated again and again by the most stupid politician.
When Yen is cheap, Finance Minister borrow from Japan, and when Yen moves up, Finance Minister repays with more ringgit.

Why can borrow in USD now as it is already near to peak, and repay when it coming down with less ringgit?

Safer bet will be borrowing GBP now as UK heading for holland.
We may repay when GBP comes down to 4 to a ringgit.

This is always a problem of getting big head as Finance Minister.
Starting with doing away with GST, only to find out no more money to pay civil servants salary.

Then stupid property gain tax for those residential property sold even after 5 years, that effectively kill all those planning to upgrade when they have bigger family and need bigger space for living.
Can you imagine those who bought houses 30 years ago at 100k as part of retirement plan selling the house now, only to find out they have to pay 40 or 50k on Property Gain Tax?

All in all, LGE is not a competent person to be Finance Minister.
No foresight, no vision, and no long term planning..........
