LETTER | Malaysia’s O&G assets lost at South China Sea

January 11, 2023

Dateline 2022-10-08, Malaysiakini:

Ongoing debate and disputes over the territorial waters of the South China Sea (SCS) may now have escalated to the point where Malaysia is set to lose out on its oil and gas assets in the region.

As one of the main economic contributors to the country, Malaysia cannot afford to lose these assets and there is a need for a “wake-up call” for Malaysia to aggressively act now and defend its oil and gas assets at the SCS region rather than taking a “soft diplomatic” approach over the situation.
