Sultan Nazrin urges envoys to engage with civil societies, NGOs

Diplomats must work more closely with civil society groups and non-governmental organisations (NGO) to best serve national interests, said Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah.

This is because civil societies and NGOs have emerged as among the most significant players in the international realm today, the Perak Ruler said in a keynote address at the Institute of Diplomacy and Foreign Relations here on Wednesday.

Sultan Nazrin said long established and reputable international NGOs such as Amnesty International, CARE International, OXFAM International, Doctors Without Borders and Mercy Malaysia have contributed towards the alleviation of human suffering and the improvement of livelihoods.
