KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia is seeking investment from Indian companies as part of the Southeast Asian country's ongoing efforts to diversify its economy away from commodities. One high-profile project related to that push involves the planned construction of an integrated port and city by partners from both countries.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, who is on a working visit to India, told investors in New Delhi on Monday to seize opportunities in his country, touting its diverse economy and large population of overseas Indians -- the world's highest.
