With better advertising and promotion, Malaysian-made products which are as good as foreign brands, can reach internationally-known status and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will play his part to help promote local products abroad.

The Prime Minister, who will be leaving for Tokyo, Japan on December 15 in conjunction with the 50th Year of Asean-Japan Friendship and Cooperation, said at the launching of Malaysian Goods Carnival on Thursday (Dec 14) that he would adorn the Malaysian batik during one of the dinners which he would be attending.

Anwar also said while the government would do its part in promoting Malaysian goods, the best form of advertising were the consumers, and stressed the importance of buying local products.
