In Abu Dhabi on trade mission, not in Qatar for World Cup.
International Trade and Industry minister Tengku Zafrul Aziz missed the newly-appointed cabinet’s first meeting in Putrajaya today as he was overseas.
It is understood that he is in Abu Dhabi to attend a trade mission.
Earlier reports had claimed that Tengku Zafrul had missed the cabinet meeting as he was away in Qatar.
“He is not in Qatar, as claimed. He’s not there to watch the World Cup. He went to Abu Dhabi on a trade mission,” said a source.
Tengku Zafrul had gone to the Ministry of International Trade and Industry at 6.07pm on Saturday evening for a symbolic ceremony of clocking in for work.
