The prime minister and his Malaysian counterpart Dr Mahathir are expected to hold a one-on-one meeting to review the existing bilateral relations and cooperation as well as identify new areas for future collaboration.
According to Wisma Putra, Imran Khan would be accorded a welcoming ceremony before attending a restricted meeting with Dr Mahathir at the prime minister's office, followed by a delegation meeting.
Following their bilateral meeting, Dr Mahathir and Imran Khan will also witness the signing of an agreement by the governments of Malaysia and Pakistan at the Prime Minister’s Office on the partial abolition of visa for travel between the two countries.
Imran Khan is also scheduled to visit the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters.
On October 18, PM Khan and Malaysian PM Mahathir had held a telephonic conversation, in which the former had emphasised Pakistan's "close and cordial" relations with Malaysia.
PM Khan, highlighting the "need of high-level bilateral exchanges" between the two countries, had said that Pakistan and Malaysia should collaborate at an "operational level" so that they could benefit from each other's expertise.
In 2017, the total bilateral trade between the two countries stood at RM5.76 billion, an increase of 3.5 per cent compared to 2016. Pakistan is Malaysia’s third largest trading partner among South Asian countries.
