In his welcoming remarks at the two-day Malaysian food promotion, held at the Sheraton Hotel in Santiago Monday, he said, “I believe in food diplomacy as a means to enhance one’s own culture and food in a foreign land, what more a nation that is like more than 15,000km away.”
The event is collaboration between the Malaysian embassy in Santiago and the Sheraton Hotel Santiago.
In a statement to Bernama he said, “This even could also be a good platform to strengthen bilateral ties.”
“Through this kind of event, people-to-people link can also be enhanced thus leading to beneficial bilateral relations.”
Mohamad Rameez also appreciated the presence of Malaysian celebrity chef, Chef Wan, who showcased his expertise in cooking Malaysian cuisine, which is rich in its diversity – with Malay, Indian and Chinese influence.
The envoy said that he would like to see more exchanges of chefs between both nations as “food ambassadors” via similar events.
