18.06.2020: Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to the People’s Republic of China cum MCBC Chairman, Dato Sri Tiong King Sing expressed that Malaysia would cooperate with more China-related business groups to promote people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.
Dato Sri Tiong expressed his expectations for his new post at a dinner with the Malaysia-China Friendship Association recently.
Dato Sri Tiong pointed out that in the context of coronavirus pandemic, the global economy has been hit unprecedentedly, triggering social problems such as the collapse of economy and the wave of unemployment.
Dato Sri Tiong therefore said, “I hope that China, which has a strong economic foundation, can promote the economic development of Malaysia and reduce the damage caused by this crisis.”
He said that MCBC will focus on Malaysia-China bilateral trade issues in particular to attract more China’s high-tech enterprises to venture into Malaysia, in order to promote win-win cooperation that benefits both parties through market development and technology transfer.
He added, “Malaysia is a long-term friendly partner of China. The bilateral trade and economic cooperation have always been at the peak, and mutual investment has also increased. The cooperation between sister twin parks, CMQIP and MCKIP is the best example.”
He also hoped that MCBC could establish a one-stop service mechanism to effectively assist foreign investors, including China and other countries, to solve various problems in investment in Malaysia.
