Nay Pyi Daw: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday met his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak in Myanmar's capital Naypyidaw on the sidelines of the 12th Association of South East Asian Nations-India Summit being held at the Myanmar International Convention Centre (MICC).

“I am giving a lot of emphasis to 'Make in India' and want to invite Malaysian companies to come to India. There are a lot of opportunities," PM Modi said, according to his official website.

"Malaysia worked a lot on affordable housing. We want every Indian to have a home by 2022. We have seen your companies can work in this area," he told the Malaysian Prime Minister.

Earlier, leaders of various countries marked the opening of the 25th ASEAN Summit which will witness the participation of countries like the United States, Japan, China, South Korea, Russia, India, Australia and New Zealand.

The Prime Minister had arrived in Myanmar on Tuesday, following which he met with that country's President, Thein Sein.

India-Myanmar relations are rooted in shared historical, ethnic, cultural and religious ties.

As the land of Lord Buddha, India is a country of pilgrimage for the people of that nation. The geographical proximity has also helped develop and sustain cordial relations and facilitated people-to-people contact.
