Being a recipient of the Malaysian Government Training Award, I am also a career civil servant in the Malaysian Government with 13 years of working experience in defence and security, and 2 years in an administrative function at a national training institute.
From 2011 to 2017, I was stationed at the Ministry of Defence Malaysia, where I was responsible for providing analysis in pursuing and strengthening bilateral defence relations between Malaysia and its defence counterparts in Europe and the Americas. Throughout that time, I worked closely with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia, the Malaysian Security Council, the Armed Forces, and the Foreign Defence Offices of various Embassies in Kuala Lumpur. I was also the key coordinators for Ministerial level defence bilateral meetings locally and abroad from 2011 to 2017. Amongst achievements includes coordinating the signing of new and reviewed security and defence agreements between Malaysia and its defence partners, and the establishment of new High-Level Committees.
