Kota Kinabalu: The new British High Commissioner to Malaysia, Ailsa Terry, paid a courtesy call on Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Haji Noor at Menara Kinabalu, Tuesday.

Terry, who took over from Charles Hay in August last year, was formerly the Director of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) inaugural Sanctions Directorate from 2022 to 2023.

Among the issues discussed were reinforcing ties, increasing trade and investments from British companies in Sabah, bringing British universities to open branches in Sabah (twinning degree programme with local University College Sabah Foundation), security and tourism.

Terry is also fluent in the Malay language. She was accompanied by British High Commission Second Secretary (Political) Robert Pepper and British Honorary Consul in Sabah, David Powell.

Among the areas of cooperation discussed, which could be further enhanced, included tourism and trade.

He was accompanied by Singapore High Commission to Malaysia, First Secretary Bhargav Sriganesh.
