ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif said on Monday there existed vast scope of mutually beneficial cooperation between Pakistan and Malaysia in energy, tourism, telecommunication, vocational training, aviation, and services, including finance sectors.

The Prime Minister expressed these views during a meeting with Chairman MMC Corporation of Malaysia, Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, who called on him here at the PM House.
