Three representatives from MCCC Sabah Branch were invited to the China Marine Economy Expo. The Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province and Sabah, have great potential for complementary development in terms of marine resources. They look forward to seeing more opportunities for cooperation in the future to promote investment and projects in various fields including marine and tourism industry.
The MCCC Sabah Branch mentioned the above to the media after participating in the Dongguan Maritime Silk Road International Expo from December 14-17.
Foo Ngee Kee, MCCC Sabah Branch First Vice President attended on behalf of President Datuk Liew Chun Tai and sign the framework agreement for strategic cooperation. Michael Chin Wee Yee ASDK, MCCC Branch Secretary and Ngan Yoke Loo ADK, MCCC Sabah Branch Deputy Director of PR also attended. The three representatives attended the exhibitions, business matching, and tour the attractions of Zhanjiang City.
On the last day in Zhanjiang City, the delegates from Malaysia received a warm invitation from the famous local founder of Pineapple Chicken, Chen Jianping, to visit the restaurant and enjoy the local delicacies.
It is reported that the restaurant advocates the concept of animal welfare and actively create a comfortable living for the chicken by feeding the chicken with pineapple and whole grains. The chickens live in a clean environment and are fed under a scientific feeding system that is natural and high quality for better growth and breeding.
Chen Jianping said he was determined at his own ideas and dedication, bent on promoting green eco-food.
Foo Ngee Kee, Michael Chin Wee Yee ASDK and Ngan Yoke Loo again returned to the Exhibition Hall to conduct a more in-depth study to understand the development and mode of China's marine industry and economy, and discuss whether there is potential for cooperation and development in the future.
They thanked the host and the ASEAN-China Commerce Association (ACCA) for their assistance so that they had the opportunity to participate in this event to build various networks and other resources. The MCCC Sabah Branch also hopes to maintain close ties with Zhanjiang City and overseas business associations in the future to fulfill and implement various projects in the strategic agreement, and to create a win-win situation.
Zhanjiang City is formerly known as Guangzhou Bay and has a long history and culture. It was once the largest colony in history by France. The total area of 1,300 square kilometers was larger than that the New Territories of Hong Kong. Zhanjiang is still the best natural harbor between Hong Kong and Indochina.
When the then Guangzhou Bay was returned to China, it was renamed as Zhanjiang. In the beginning, it was a small town full of Western sentiment. After many years of evolution, the incumbent government has realized the importance of preserving historical sites and spares no effort in preserving the historical materials and its monuments, so that people can still hear about Guangzhou Bay even after nearly half a century.
Many entrepreneurs from Dongguan had a courtesy visit to MCCC Sabah Branch and expressed their hope to reach a strategic cooperation framework agreement in implementing the Belt and Road Initiative in Sabah that benefits both sides on investment and development.
Datuk Liew Chun Tai, MCCC Sabah Branch President, joined several council members and members to receive the entrepreneurs from Dongguan. The representatives from MCCC Sabah branch were Foo Ngee Kee, First Vice President, Dato’ Dr Tan Tiang Lai, Vice President, Michael Chin Wee Yee ASDK, Secretary, Ngan Yoke Loo ADK, Director of PR, Zhang Jia zhou, Deputy Director of PR, Robert Chang Kon Hee, Zhang Guo Zhou, National Council Members and Liu Yi Xing, Life Member.
Datuk Liew Chun Tai said that Sabah is a scenic, resourceful and sparsely populated place where the local Chinese community has a complete preservation of Chinese culture. Therefore, there are absolutely no obstacles and problems with China in terms of language, culture and even diet.
Datuk Liew said that Sabah is also voted as one of the top ten places to enjoy the sunset in the world. It is also the only place in Asia that is suitable to retire and recuperate in the world. The local tourism-related industries are now booming.
"Our government also sets a goal to achieve the number of China tourist of 1 million. What we lack most now is the four-star and the five-star hotels. Therefore, we hope that entrepreneurs will consider this project because our tourism industry is booming, while driving the surrounding industries," Datuk Liew added.
Datuk Liew also stressed that there is still room for real estate in Sabah as there is no seasons, the climate throughout the year is mild and there are no environmental problems. It is a very livable place.
He added that the MCCC Sabah Branch is willing to help if there is a need in development and investment.
"MCCC is an organization gathered with talents and representatives in all fields. We have all the networks and contacts you need whether it is real estate or tourism."
Datuk Liew also expressed the hope that Dongguan's business representatives will be able to organize a delegation of entrepreneurs from Dongguan to MCCC Sabah Branch in the future to maintain close ties as well as more frequent cooperation and contacts. We hoped Malaysia can become a vanguard in implementing the Belt and Road Initiative in Sabah.
Wu Lianhong also said that many people in Dongguan now have gone abroad to invest in Malaysia. However, she has not yet invested in Sabah. She hoped that he would have the opportunity to bring the related investment projects to Sabah.
Wu, who has visited Sabah twice this year, said she was very impressed with Sabah and liked the surrounding as well as the investment environment in Sabah. She is optimistic that Sabah will be a place worth investing in real estate in the future.
Wu said Dongguan is currently a first-class city and welcomes frequent exchanges in Dongguan to bring the entrepreneurs from Dongguan to go abroad and participate in the concept of the Belt and Road Initiative.
On the other hand, Niu Hasha also introduced Dongguan Talent Association for Promotion and Development, which gathers talents from various fields, especially the world famous manufacturing industry in Dongguan, high-tech industry, high-end information industry, and fashion industry. It now has 280 enterprises, the total economic output is more than one hundred billion yuan.
Niu Hasha said she had visited Malaysia Dongguan Association and Seremban Toong Onn Community Association in April 2017. At that time, Niu did not meet anyone from Sabah. Therefore, she did not manage to establish any contact. She had a very good first impression on Sabah when she came to Sabah this time.
"Dongguan and the folks in Malaysia are closely related. Currently, the Dongguan entrepreneurs in Malaysia are already the fifth generation. We express our heartfelt admiration to the elder generation who went through hard work to start a business in Malaysia," Niu added.
Niu said that Dongguan talents hope to contact with various local business associations in Malaysia under the China's Belt and Road Initiative. She also hoped that both sides would have the opportunity to have a long-term cooperation and that the MCCC Sabah branch can visit Dongguan and discuss the possibility of signing a framework agreement on strategic cooperation so that various projects can be implemented through MCCC Sabah Branch.

30 delegations from the Penang branch of Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) and the Malaysian Chinese Cultural Society were invited by Sichuan Provincial People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries to visit Deyang City, Suining City, Chengdu City and Mianyang City for business visit and exchange.
The delegation went to visit the historical sites of Sanxingdui Museum, Guangde Temple, Chengdu Planning Center, Science and Technology City Achievement Gallery, Yuewang Tower, Li Bai Memorial Hall and Li Bai Stele, High-tech factories and enterprises such as Taiwan Pcb Techvest Co., Ltd. and open area Electronic Industrial Park, Tebian Electrician Deyang Cable Company Limited, and Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd. under the arrangement of Sichuan Economic and Cultural Delegation.
Introduce the Investment Environment

Its leaders also introduced the investment environment and advantages of the place.
Zhao Ping, President of Sichuan Provincial People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries mentioned in the exchange meeting that the strategic partnership between China and Malaysia has been continuously strengthened. In addition, the interaction in economy, culture, science and technology, education and other fields have been carried out through friendly associations.
"Sichuan is an important nodal point connecting northwestern and southwestern China, a front-line position for opening up inland and a strategic support for the development of the western region. By working together, entrepreneurs from both countries can seek more cooperation opportunities, reach more consensus on cooperation, get more cooperation results and inject momentum into bilateral economic and trade cooperation," Zhao Ping added.
China sees Malaysia as important partners
Teh Eng Hin, MCCC Penang Branch and Leader of the delegation pointed out that under the Belt and Road Initiative, China has taken Malaysia as an important strategic partner that holds a pivotal position.
China has set up a consulate-General and Bank of China in Penang to reflect the efforts, contributions and sincerity of China in promoting the economic and trade commissions of both countries. MCCC published the Malaysia-China Trade and Investment Guide in July 2017 to help entrepreneurs in the two countries to understand the laws, incentives, financial system and investment opportunities of the two countries.
Teh said it is very timely to publish this guide book because China and Malaysian businessmen need all kinds of assistance when they invest in China and Malaysia respectively.
"The earliest proposed project in our country was the earliest gain, such as the East Coast Rail link (ECRL) by China's manpower, material and financial support. China is the second-largest economy in the world. It enhances economic and trade cooperation between the two countries to promote more trade and economic cooperation and growth, and improve national economic development. "
Penang is a major electronics manufacturing hub and tourist attraction. It maintains close ties with China regardless of its heritage, economy, culture and language. Penang Port is also listed as one of the member ports of the China–Malaysia Port Alliance (CMPA) and an important nodal point of the Silk Road.
Teh said that the MCCC established the Malaysia-China Economic and Trade Research Center with Malaysia’s and China’s experts and scholars to carry out researches and studies on specific topics in Malaysia and China. And will launch the China ASEAN Finance Training and Information Technology website to strengthen our service.
Five members of the delegation from Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC)—Secretary-General Kevin Siah, Treasurer Thay Peng Hong, National Council Member Koh Keng Kok, Youth Wing Chairman Bryan Chong, and Youth Wing First Vice Chairman Lim Le Kern, visited Shao Haihui Association. They learned about the ecosystem mode of Shao Haihui, and held in-depth exchanges with Vice President of I-City, Yao Pu and General Manager of Krund, Li Wenke on security robots and smart city construction.
MCCC was established in 1990 with the aim of promoting the economic and trade development and investment cooperation between China and Malaysia and playing an important role in the economic and trade exchange between China and Malaysia.
From May 14 to 15 this year, the Belt and Road Initiative International Cooperation Summit was held in Beijing. The Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak led a delegation to attend this summit and MCCC President, Tan Yew Sing was one of the delagates.
In the 2017-2018 economic report released by Malaysia in early December, it includes the China's Belt and Road Initiative for the first time.
Jiaozhou Development Zone, where the headquarters of Shao Haihui is located, owns the only Eurasian economic and trade cooperation industrial park with cross-directional investment and interaction in both China and Eurasia and home and abroad. With the construction of Belt and Road in the country, Jiaozhou Development Zone devotes to global smart home industry chain Investment and resource integration, focusing on the global smart home industrial park layout.
During the visit, delegations were greatly impressed by the Krund’s I-City industry. In particular, the security robot developed by Krund made a profound impression on them and said that at present the law and order management of some districts in Malaysia basically relies on traditional way of doing. Hence, Malaysia needs to implement the said artificial intelligent to improve the security situation.
As a new industry of the Shao Haihui’s ecosystem, Krund’s I-City is a joint effort of 15 leading companies in the industry such as Haieros, ITOO Smart Home, NVC Lighting, Smart City, and iSoftStone to create a sustainable smart city in 9 major areas of smart traffic, smart security, smart education, smart healthcare, smart communities and smart sports through Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and other technologies.
The technologies include Krund’s robot using face recognition, infrared sensors and other technologies, equipped with remote, and night vision camera. The robot perform the same job as the security personnel including monitoring the personnel, vehicles, anomalies to implement 24 hours 360-degree real-time monitoring to avoid security blind spots. This does not only enhance community security conditions, but also save manpower and reduce property management costs.
In addition, Krund’s security robot has repeatedly made its debut at the Dubai International Exhibition and other international exhibitions. It was exported to Singapore and other places. Now, it is a popular product.
Besides, members of the Shao Haihui invented the intelligent locks, using binocular camera technology, not only can accurately identify small details like whether a person has shaved, but also detect whether it is human or pictures to ensure accuracy and safety.
After the visit, both sides conducted more in-depth exchanges. The MCCC also enthusiastically invited Krund to visit and jointly helped build the smart city.

“MCEC 2017 will focus on business matching with a special dedicated venue for each of the seven major matching industries — real estate and construction; technology; agriculture; medical and health; service industry such as education and logistic; halal products as well as manufacturing.
“Since its inauguration, MCEC has been building on the contribution of its predecessors, encapsulating positive energy and entrepreneur wisdom, while inspiring younger generations to think out of the box,” Tan added.
He said that, hopefully, this year’s organiser, MCCC Youth Council can learn from their past achievements and to surprise them with their new ideas.
The MCEC 2017 organising chairman Bryan Chong said: “This year, MCEC 2017 will focus on business matching with the aim of receiving investments from China and using local suppliers, which both countries can benefit from this mutual development opportunity.
“Business matching will also benefit local enterprises, especially small and medium enterprises, where they can come into contact with global enterprises and international business models, and help them to create a win-win business strategy.”
Chong believed that MCEC 2017 will stand out as a truly effective and productive conference that will open up new roads for entrepreneurs from Malaysia and China, by practicing togetherness and joint creation.
Currently, more than 600 local business representatives and over 250 overseas units have signed up for MCEC 2017.
The conference carries the theme of “The Road” which encompasses the three main concepts of “Road”, “Togetherness” and “Creation”.
Local business representatives could also expect to work with local development bodies such as the University of Malaya Centre of Innovation and Commercialisation (UMCIC), Malaysia Foreign Trade Development Council (Matrade), Malaysia Investment Development Authority (MIDA), and other Malaysia-China business associations, bodies and chambers of commerce.
The MCEC 2017 organising chairman called for the enterprises at home and abroad to seize this golden opportunity.
“For those who are interested in venturing into the overseas markets and to progress with the times, as well as innovative and forward-thinking businesses, MCEC 2017 is the best place for you to grasp the latest market developments and find your ideal cooperation partners, suppliers, buyers, and agents,” added Chong.
ON Nov 25, I attended a conference in Putrajaya. When I arrived at the venue, I was surprised to see how big the conference was.
There were easily around 1,500 people in the audience, as well as booths with companies showcasing their products and services. This was clearly not just another conference.
The Malaysia-China Entrepreneurs Conference was organised by the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC), an organisation that humbled me when they invited me to become their honorary adviser last year.
The MCCC is a business association founded in 1990. Their aim is to promote interaction, cooperation and development of trade and investments between Malaysia and China.
For many years it was dominated by Malaysian Chinese businesses and businessmen, which is understandable, because Malaysian Chinese would of course have an advantage when it comes to business dealings with China.
But under the leadership of their current president, Tan Yew Sing, they have set a vision to become a chamber for all Malaysian companies interested in doing business in China, regardless of race and religion.
In one of the business missions to China earlier this year, they made it a point to rope in a group of non-Chinese businesses.
And at this conference, one session was dedicated specifically to explaining the opportunities around halal industries in China and how Malaysian halal businesses can penetrate that market.
MCCC is clearly trying hard to spread opportunities to Malaysia as a whole.
With such lofty vision and an inclusive attitude, it is no wonder that the chamber was able to attract a huge crowd to their events and activities.
Then, on Nov 30, I had the opportunity to join a dinner in Singapore hosted by the US-Asean Business Council. The dinner was to celebrate 50 years of Asean and 40 years of US-Asean relations.
Once again, I saw how a clear vision and capable leadership can contribute to the success of a business association.
I have been familiar with the work of the US-Asean Business Council in Malaysia for some time, but last week was my first time chatting with their regional management team.
They have positioned themselves to be one of the premier organisations advocating beneficial trade and investment relationships between the US and Asean.
They arrange their work around policy themes, ensuring that they can properly represent the interests of their members in all of the 10 Asean countries.
Business associations and chambers of commerce can play a key part in developing and growing the roles of the private sector, not just in the economy but also in the wider governance of the country.
The Centre for International Enterprise, an organisation that helps build the capacity of business associations worldwide, says that business associations and chambers do not just contribute to economic growth, development, peace, and prosperity, but also towards building inclusive entrepreneurship ecosystems and strengthening democracy.
I share that belief. This is why we need the business associations in this country to be led by capable men and women with a sense of vision and integrity.
There are actually many business associations that exist in Malaysia today. Some operate at the national level, while others operate at state level. There are associations that are industry-specific, and there are quite a few who arrange themselves along ethnic lines.
The success of these associations is usually quite dependent on the quality of their leadership.
There are some whose glory days are gradually leaving them. They made the mistake of electing incapable leaders, some of whom are more interested in petty internal politics and even fail to organise simple things like proper annual general meetings.
They manage the organisation through divide and rule, bad-mouthing those whom they disagree with.
Unless these failing leaders are quickly replaced, these organisations are more likely to suffer diminishing membership and fade away.
There are also associations that are led by people with vision. They invite people with a variety of skills to help them in growing their associations, and they are brave enough to embrace the changing dynamics in today’s world.
These leaders value the contributions made by their staff. Rather than using the platform to promote only themselves, they invest in good people who can champion the causes of the private sector.
These organisations have the potential to really make the private sector the engine of Malaysia’s growth.
Nevertheless, one of the weaknesses that we still have in Malaysia today is the very low level of interaction between business associations and civil society.
Malaysian businesses have been actively playing their roles in improving governance, but the most vocal actors on this matter are usually civil society.
Unfortunately, the two groups tend to work separately. They rarely synergise their efforts to produce greater and quicker impacts. This is one area that needs to be improved as we move forward into the new year.

HUNAN: Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) President, Tan Yew Sing was invited to the 10th China International Small and Medium Enterprises Fair held in Changsha, Hunan Province. In addition, Tan was also invited as the speaker for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Enterprise Business Forum.

This Bureau will continue to hold this annual event and present the forum recommendations to the APEC Ministerial Meeting of SMEs to practically promote the SME Innovative Development in the Asia Pacific region.
This year, the organizers of this forum are the China Centre for Promotion of SME Development and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China International Cooperation Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, APEC SMESA (the Alliance of APEC SME Service Agencies), Beijing Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese and Changsha Municipal Government.

Li Genxin's talked about ‘SME Innovation Model and International Vision’. He emphasized that SMEs are the driving force for innovation, including opening up new materials, new products, new platforms, new technologies, new mobile platforms and new financing model and etc.
Victor Cadena focused on his experience in new strategies for SME innovation and development. He talked about the challenges and bottlenecks in the development of SMEs including lack of funding, lack of professional advice, international resources, lack of systematic information, product research, e-commerce and technology and etc.
Wang Yuzhuo clarified that SMEs are an innovative platform and main source of employment, which remarkably stabilize a country. In his opinion, the SMEs in APEC's 21 countries have different problems and should support each other through communication. We must focus on promoting the inclusive development of SMEs. He believed that the key to the success of SMEs in today's society depends on management skills, entrepreneurship, corporate culture, innovative thinking, business environment, market access, financing capabilities, internationalization and e-commerce capabilities.
The two-day 10th China International SMEs Trade Fair and 2017 APEC SME Business Forum attracted government officials, experts, scholars and entrepreneurs representatives from over 30 countries and regions to communicate and cooperate on a win-win platform, and explore the direction of innovation.
The Forum will be held every year to enhance the communication among government, academia, research and other industries, and to shape an international platform to serve the development of SMEs in the Asia Pacific region.
The 7th Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC) 2017 was successfully organised by Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) and that 1500 local and oversea participants' event was officiated by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysian entrepreneurs must seize the business opportunities available in China and beyond, particularly in the more than 60 countries participating in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.
As such, he advised Malaysian businessmen to start working out strategies to penetrate the markets along the BRI route that has a massive population of 4.4 billion people.
Malaysia already has a significant amount of annual trade with the BRI countries, he added.
“The opportunity is tremendous.
“We are talking about a big chunk of trade, and these figures should give an indication to Malaysian businesses the kind of prospects the Belt and Road Initiative provides them.
“The time is now for our businessmen to not only focus on domestic demands, but explore the regional markets as well, including opportunities available in China and beyond,” he said at the opening of the 7th Malaysia-China Entrepreneurs Conference here yesterday.
Also present were MCCC president Tan Yew Sing, the chamber’s honorary presidents Datuk Bong Hon Liong, Tan Kai Hee and Yong Ah Pwi, Chinese Embassy in Malaysia Charge d’Affaires ad Interim Ma Jia, and MCEC organising chairman Bryan Chong.
Malaysia’s annual trade with countries along the Belt and Road exceeded RM850bil in 2016. With BRI, the amount of trade is expected to increase in the next decade.
Taking the right initiative: Dr Wee (fifth from left) at the opening of the conference. With him are (from left) Bong, Chong, Ma, Yew Sing, Kai Hee and Yong.
The BRI, which started in 2013, covers three quarters of the world’s land mass and 60% of the global population.
Dr Wee said Malaysia and China need to deepen their collaboration, particularly in business and trade. Both sides have identified property, medicine, manufacturing and services as their core sectors of interest, and they need to draw up win-win ventures.
“All this spells huge potential and comes at the right time for us to expand our market and expertise.
“Our edge is that we have penetrated the China market for years, even before they opened their doors to the world. And it is also to our advantage that we speak and understand their language and culture,” he added.
Dr Wee pointed out that the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) is another platform for local SMEs to expand their markets, as the DFTZ makes it easier for them and e-commerce businesses to sell their products globally.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had recently said that he wanted at least 10,000 SMEs to take part in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba’s Singles Day sale and Malaysia Week online promotion next year.
The Singles’ Day sale is a 24-hour shopping promotion.
Dr Wee said China has been Malaysia’s largest trading partner for eight consecutive years since 2009.
He said this conference is timely as the people of both countries are constantly looking forward to connect, engage and explore the many possibilities for them to work together.
The Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference is held annually since 2011 by the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce. It was held twice outside Malaysia – in Xiamen and Chengdu in China in 2014 and 2016.
According to the MCEC 2017 website, this year’s theme is “The Road”, which symbolises access.
KUALA LUMPUR: In conjunction with the benefits brought by the formation of the cross-border economic zone under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK) will continue to assist Hong Kong to become the business hub by providing professional and pragmatic business-friendliness service for the enterprises in Hong Kong, China and overseas.
Over the next five to ten years, InvestHK aims to create top ten key industries, namely Transport and Industrial, Tourism and Hospitality, Financial Services (asset management), Maritime, Innovation and Technology, Business and Professional Services, FinTech and Smart City, and then leads Hong Kong to continue its glory and create new business opportunities.
“Hong Kong as the most competitive and number one commercial city in Asia, has become the best place for China enterprises to expand their business to Asia Pacific and overseas. Hong Kong has 35% of start-up companies. Those companies are founded by people from China, Asia, Europe and other places. We can see that Hong Kong is a strong advocate for free trade and open markets,” Director General (DG) of InvestHK, Stephen Phillips said this when he led a delegation to visit the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) yesterday. At present, the Malaysian companies that have set up in Hong Kong are PappaRich, Plaza Premium Lounge, Star Cruises, TM and etc.
“Doing business in Hong Kong has diversified advantages, including abundant international capital, high level of enterprise governance and supervision, conducive in listed companies’ fund raising, simple, transparent and stable tax regime, probity law, open and transparent system, free circulation of information, strong talent pool, sharp market sense, familiar with Chinese mainland business and international business and etc.” Phillips pointed out.
“Hong Kong is the fourth largest destination in the world for foreign direct investment (FDI), attracting a total investment of USD 108 billion last year. We have world-class intellectual property protection system. In recent years, Hong Kong is committed to R&D innovation and knowledge-intensive industries. Next, it will be followed by stem cells, regenerative medicine, intelligent wearable equipment, robots and other advanced technologies, to complete the re-industrialization of Hong Kong,” Phillips added.
At the same time, in order to break through geographical restrictions, Hong Kong is still actively building a new economic circle, including utilizing the Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail Link to connect to the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
In the BRI, Hong Kong Former Chief Executive, Leung Chun-ying pointed out that Hong Kong is expected to become a strong connection and global market bridge for mainland China and other participating countries of the BRI. In addition, Hong Kong can assist China enterprises to invest in other countries and also bring in investment, techniques and talents to China by providing professional services.
“The logistics industry in Malaysia will flourish with the emerging e-commerce industry,” Phillips said optimistically.
"Moreover, Malaysia's education has attracted well-known universities such as Xiamen University and etc. Malaysia’s competitive healthcare industry is also well known to foreigners. The healthcare, tourism and other services industries have promising future," Phillips added.
Tan Yew Sing, President of the MCCC, who received the delegation, hoped that InvestHK will participate in the 7th Malaysian Entrepreneurs Conference (MCEC 2017) which will be held on 25 November at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC).
“We believed that Malaysian businessmen are interested to invest in Hong Kong and we suggest InvestHK to set up an exclusive session at MCEC 2017 so that there could be face to face interaction and business matching to achieve better result,” Tan said.
In addition, Phillips is also interested in the ‘Malaysia-China Trade and Investment Guide’ which will be published by MCCC soon. The Guide is to assist Malaysia and China businessmen and investors to understand Malaysia-China laws and regulations, taxation system, financial system and investment opportunities.
