Swaziland has expressed a keen interest to adopt Malaysia’s Blue Ocean Strategy (BOS) to further spur its economy, says Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland.
She said the matter was raised today during her bilateral meeting with the King of Swaziland, His Majesty King Mswati III on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management 2016 Biennial Conference being held here.
“We were talking about sustainable development goals, at how we can work together (to achieve it).
“We were also talking about the blue ocean economy that has been promoted here (in Malaysia) and how we can work (together) on this,” Scotland told here today.
At the conclusion of the inaugural International Conference on BOS yesterday, Malaysia was given the thumbs up for various initiatives taken under its national BOS.
During the three-day event, leaders attending the conference, including His Majesty King Mswati III, praised Malaysia for sharing her secret of success with other countries through BOS.
Swaziland, a small landlocked country in southern Africa, has a diversified economy with agriculture, forestry and mining, as well as, manufacturing and services sectors as major contributors to its coffers.
