"I have full confidence in him," he said.

Arul Kanda has provided good leadership for the resolution of the rationalisation of 1MDB and "he will continue to be there," Najib, who is also the Finance Minister, told Malaysian journalists at the end of the two-day Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation here today.

As far as Bandar Malaysia is concerned, Treasury Secretary-General Tan Sri Irwan Serigar Abdullah would be in charge.

"But, Tan Sri Irwan will be in consultation with Arul Kanda with respect to the future development of Bandar Malaysia," he said.
