Regional delegates to discuss haze

KUALA LUMPUR, July 15 (Bernama) -- About 40 delegates from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei and Thailand gathered here today, to attend a technical task force meeting to strengthen regional collaboration in dealing with the haze.

The delegates, who are technical officers from the respective environmental departments of the five countries, are expected to lay the groundwork for their ministers for the 15th Meeting of Sub-regional Ministerial Steering Committee (MSC) on Wednesday.

The MSC meeting that will be hosted by Malaysia's Natural Resources and Environment Ministry will welcome the five environment ministers to further discuss and seek options regarding the problem.

The haze, which originated from Indonesia last month, blanketed part of Malaysia and Singapore, as well as Indonesia.
