KANGAR: The Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, opened an art exhibition on Peru here last night and called for the enhancing of ties between Malaysia and the South American country.
The exhibition, 'Odyssey: Perlis to Machu Picchu', is being held for two weeks at Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP), organised by UniMAP in collaboration with the Peruvian Embassy.
After two weeks, the exhibition will be held at the Perlis State Library until Dec 30.
Speaking at the launch, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin, who is also the Chancellor of UniMAP, called for the promotion of Malaysia-Peru relations in all sectors, including tourism, trade and investment, agriculture and forestry, health, science and technology, energy, education, rural development, poverty alleviation, gastronomy, and art and culture.
"More exchanges of information and best practices in various areas of mutual interest must be promoted together," he said.
Also present at the event were the Raja Puan Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Hajah Lailatul Shahreen Akashah Khalil, UniMAP Vice-Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Kamarudin Hussin and Peruvian Ambassador to Malaysia Marco Balarezo.
The exhibition, among other things, aims to introduce Machu Picchu, an ancient settlement located halfway up the Andes Plateau, deep in the Amazon jungle and above the Urubamba River, as an attractive destination in Peru. -- BERNAMA
