Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) aims to create stronger trade linkages between Malaysia and the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) member countries, its chairman Tan Sri Halim Mohammad said Monday. According to Halim, the services sector offers good potential for collaboration among companies in OIC countries. These would include construction, education, healthcare, franchise, information and communications technology (ICT), and printing and publishing services, he said. He added that the top five markets in OIC countries for Malaysia's construction services last year were Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Sudan.
