Souvenir: President of MCCC, Tan Yew Sing (second from right) presents a souvenir that incorporates three major ethnic cultures in Malaysia to the Ambassador, H.E. Bai Tian (center).
14 June 2018
Kuala Lumpur: The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People's Republic of China to Malaysia, H.E. Bai Tian, disclosed that the China Construction Bank (Malaysia) Berhad recently purchased RM200million Malaysian Islamic Bond to support our new government.
The Ambassador said that the Chinese government places importance on the relations between Malaysia and China. When the new government tries to solve the debt problem, the purchase of government bonds is a support for Malaysia.
The Ambassador expressed the above remarks when he met the delegation led by the President of Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC), Tan Yew Sing last Friday. Tan briefed the Ambassador on the major activities and plans of MCCC. Both sides also exchanged views on the recent challenges and development trends of the economic and trade co-operation between Malaysia and China.
The Ambassador pointed out that the Chinese government has three prerequisites for Chinese-funded enterprises when they invest overseas: to abide by the relevant laws and regulations of Malaysia and China, comply with internationally accepted commercial guidelines and the contract, and adhere to the principle of equality, mutual benefit, and win-win co-operation.
The Ambassador said frankly that the Chinese government opposes any company's improper behaviour. If the Malaysian government needs the assistance of the embassy, he will be happy to co-operate.
Bai stressed that the negative rumours brought by the recent 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) project to the Chinese companies were only one or two cases. The views of the parties concerned on the pragmatic cooperation between Malaysia and China should not be blinded.
Speaking about the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) Project, Tan said that it is understandable the new government needs to review the rationality of this project. However, this does not mean that Malaysia is against China. The governments of both sides should negotiate it at the "nation-to-nation" level based on long-standing friendly relations. In order to achieve a win-win situation, it is indeed necessary to review the project pricing, construction time, project scale and even the construction methods.
The Ambassador pointed out that there are more than 100 state-owned and private enterprises that are currently investing or operating in Malaysia. These Chinese enterprises hire more than 70% employees on average, and the ratio of local employees in many companies is as high as 80% or even 90%. All of these are to achieve better technology transfer in the co-operation between the two countries and lay a solid foundation for Malaysia's industrial upgrading. There are also some Chinese-funded enterprises that have sent local Malay employees to Chinese corporate headquarters or higher education institutions or vocational colleges for vocational training. In order to cater to the needs of Malay technical workers attending the training in China, the Chinese companies provided them with facilities such as a halal cafeteria and prayer room.
Tan stressed that in order to promote the skills of our country’s manpower and link with China’s advanced industries as soon as possible, it is necessary for Malaysia and China to start from the vocational education co-operation in order to cultivate a new generation of high-quality skilled workers who are familiar with the economic conditions and technologies of the two countries. Malaysia, which is booming, is in great need of China’s technology, R&D resources and capital assistance. Both sides urge the Chinese companies to continue to invest in Malaysia and co-operate with the local business community for a win-win situation.
The Ambassador pointed out that the data of a large number of local employees hired by the Chinese enterprises will eventually scotch the rumours about china threat.
Bai added that certain areas required the employees from China because of the lack of local employees with relevant skills. It is hard to find local technical staff at this stage for specific types of Chinese-funded jobs. For example, TRX Exchange 106 has a full floor completed in every three days. At the top of the building, they are doing two-day cycles on the concrete floor slabs. In addition to proper planning, these achievements and engineering efficiencies must be backed up by skilled technical work.
At present, in line with the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), China has launched 13 international scholarships. There are more than 20 provincial and municipal government scholarships and 20,000 Belt and Road scholarship for overseas students including Malaysia to cultivate China’s soft power. Their target is to have 500,000 international students in 2020. According to statistics, there are more than 8,000 Malaysian students studying in China and more than 15,000 Chinese students studying in Malaysia.
The Ambassador places great importance on the economic and trade relations between Malaysia and China. He elucidates the economic and industrial contribution of Chinese enterprises to Malaysia.
"Like China's first-tier manufacturing companies, Jinko Solar and JA Solar Holdings, assisted Malaysia to become an important international producer of solar energy. The CRRC Corporation Limited (CRRC) has a manufacturing plant in Batu Gajah and this has also made Malaysia the most advanced rail transit vehicle manufacturer in ASEAN," Bai explained.
Recalling that in 2017, the bilateral trade volume between Malaysia and China reached USD96billion, and China has become Malaysia’s largest trading partner for nine consecutive years.
“Last year, the trade volume has not yet recovered to more than USD100billion but the first quarter of this year has an increase of 15.6%. We have begun to see a good momentum of growth. We are confident that this year's bilateral trade volume will exceed USD100billion," Bai said.
Last year, the volume of export from Malaysia to China amounted to USD54billion, accounting for one fourth of Malaysia’s total USD200billion in export. Last year, China was also the largest source of foreign direct investment in Malaysian manufacturing sector.
Ambassador Bai: Fresh Durian to be exported to China
The Ambassador revealed that he had recently met the new Minister of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry, YB Salahuddin Ayub. They talked about exporting fresh durian to China (currently only export frozen flesh).
"After I took office, I started to promote the export of Malaysia durian to China. There have been major positive developments in this work recently. I believe there will be good news soon," Bai believed.
Earlier, Thailand's Golden Pillow Durian was sold on the Tmall's “Taste of Thailand” page. It sold more than 80,000 orders in the first minute, causing a stir. The Ambassador felt that the durians from Malaysia were more delicious, especially the Musang King Durian. They are very popular in the Chinese market and there will be a bigger market in the future.
Finally, the Ambassador Bai highly affirmed the significant contribution made by the MCCC in promoting the friendship, economic and trade relations between the two countries, and in particular the annual event of MCCC—Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC). The Ambassador also praised MCCC for publishing the “Malaysia-China Trade and Investment Guide 2017”, organising the “Invest in China” and “Invest in Malaysia” workshops and bringing local entrepreneurs to China to participate in large-scale expos.
The other leaders of the MCCC who participated in this visit were the First Vice President, Loo Kok Seong, Vice President, Kerk Loong Sing, and Secretary-General, Kevin Siah.
Cenderamata: Presiden MCCC, Tan Yew Sing (kedua dari kanan) menyampaikan cenderahati yang menggabungkan tiga budaya etnik utama di Malaysia kepada Duta Besar, Tuan Yang Terutama Bai Tian (tengah).
14 Jun 2018
Kuala Lumpur: Duta Besar Luar Biasa dan Mutlak Republik Rakyat China ke Malaysia, Tuan Yang Terutama Bai Tian, mendedahkan bahawa China Construction Bank (Malaysia) Berhad baru-baru ini membeli Bon Islam Malaysia bernilai RM200juta untuk menyokong kerajaan baru kami.
Duta Besar itu berkata bahawa kerajaan China meletakkan kepentingan dalam hubungan antara Malaysia dan China. Apabila kerajaan baru cuba menyelesaikan masalah hutang, pembelian bon kerajaan adalah sokongan untuk Malaysia.
Duta Besar menyatakan ucapan di atas apabila beliau bertemu dengan delegasi yang dipimpin oleh Dewan Perdagangan Malaysia-China (MCCC), Tan Yew Sing pada Jumaat lepas. Tan memberitahu Duta Besar mengenai aktiviti dan rancangan utama MCCC. Kedua-dua pihak juga bertukar pandangan tentang cabaran dan trend pembangunan baru-baru ini mengenai kerjasama ekonomi dan perdagangan antara Malaysia dan China.
Duta Besar itu menegaskan bahawa kerajaan China mempunyai tiga prasyarat untuk perusahaan China ketika mereka melabur di luar negara: mematuhi undang-undang dan peraturan Malaysia dan China yang relevan, mematuhi garis panduan komersial antarabangsa dan kontrak dan mematuhi prinsip kesamaan, faedah bersama, dan kerjasama menang-menang.
Duta Besar itu berkata dengan jujurnya bahawa kerajaan China menentang sebarang tingkah laku tidak wajar syarikat China. Jika kerajaan Malaysia memerlukan bantuan kedutaan, beliau akan dengan senang hati bekerjasama.
Bai menegaskan bahawa khabar angin negatif yang dibawa oleh projek 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) baru-baru ini kepada syarikat-syarikat China hanya satu atau dua kes. Pandangan dari pihak-pihak yang berkenaan tentang kerjasama pragmatik antara Malaysia dan China tidak boleh dibutakan.
Bercakap mengenai Projek Landasan Keretapi Pantai Timur (ECRL), Tan berkata bahawa kerajaan baru mengkaji semula rasionaliti projek ini boleh difahami. Bagaimanapun, ini tidak bermakna Malaysia menentang China. Kerajaan kedua-dua pihak harus berunding di peringkat "negara-ke-negara" berdasarkan hubungan persahabatan yang lama. Untuk mencapai situasi menang-menang, sememangnya perlu untuk mengkaji semula harga projek, masa pembinaan, skala projek dan juga kaedah pembinaan.
Duta Besar itu berkata terdapat lebih daripada 100 perusahaan milik negara dan swasta dari China yang kini melabur atau beroperasi di Malaysia. Syarikat-syarikat China ini menggaji pekerja lebih dari 70% secara purata, dan nisbah pekerja tempatan di banyak syarikat China adalah sebanyak 80% atau 90%. Semua ini adalah untuk mencapai pemindahan teknologi yang lebih baik dalam kerjasama antara kedua-dua negara dan meletakkan asas kukuh bagi peningkatan industri Malaysia. Terdapat juga beberapa syarikat yang dibiayai oleh China yang menghantar pekerja Melayu tempatan ke ibu pejabat korporat Cina atau institusi pengajian tinggi atau kolej vokasional untuk latihan vokasional. Dalam usaha untuk memenuhi keperluan pekerja teknikal Melayu yang menghadiri latihan di China, syarikat-syarikat Cina memberi mereka kemudahan seperti kafeteria halal dan ruang doa.
Tan menegaskan bahawa untuk mempromosikan kemahiran tenaga kerja negara kita dan menghubungkan dengan industri maju China dengan secepat mungkin, Malaysia dan China perlu bermula dari kerjasama pendidikan vokasional untuk memupuk generasi baru yang bertaraf tinggi, pekerja mahir berkualiti yang akrab dengan keadaan ekonomi dan teknologi kedua-dua negara. Malaysia, yang sedang berkembang pesat, sangat memerlukan teknologi, sumber R&D dan bantuan modal China. Kedua-dua pihak menggesa syarikat-syarikat China untuk terus melabur di negara ini dan bekerjasama dengan komuniti perniagaan tempatan untuk situasi menang-menang.
Duta Besar itu menegaskan bahawa data menunjukkan bahawa sejumlah besar pekerja tempatan yang diupah oleh perusahaan China mungkin akan menghentikan khabar angin tentang ancaman China.
Bai menambah bahawa kawasan tertentu memerlukan pekerja dari China kerana kekurangan pekerja tempatan dengan kemahiran yang berkaitan. Sukar untuk mencari kakitangan teknikal tempatan pada peringkat ini untuk jenis pekerjaan yang dibiayai oleh China. Contohnya, TRX Exchange 106 mempunyai tingkat penuh yang disiapkan setiap tiga hari. Di bahagian atas bangunan, mereka melakukan kitaran dua hari di atas papak lantai konkrit. Di samping perancangan yang betul, pencapaian dan kecekapan kejuruteraan ini harus disokong oleh kerja teknikal yang mahir.
Kini, sejajar dengan Inisiatif Sabuk dan Jalan (Belt and Road Initiative), China telah melancarkan 13 biasiswa antarabangsa, lebih daripada 20 biasiswa kerajaan wilayah dan perbandaran dan 20,000 Biasiswa Sabuk dan Jalan (Belt and Road) untuk pelajar luar negara termasuk Malaysia untuk memupuk kuasa lembut China. Sasaran mereka adalah untuk mempunyai 500,000 pelajar antarabangsa pada 2020. Menurut statistik, terdapat lebih daripada 8,000 pelajar Malaysia yang belajar di China dan lebih daripada 15,000 pelajar Cina belajar di Malaysia.
Duta Besar amat mementingkan hubungan ekonomi dan perdagangan antara Malaysia dan China dan juga menjelaskan sumbangan ekonomi dan industri perusahaan China ke Malaysia.
"Seperti syarikat perkilangan peringkat pertama China, Jinko Solar dan JA Solar Holdings, membantu Malaysia untuk menjadi pengeluar tenaga solar penting antarabangsa. CRRC Corporation Limited (CRRC) mempunyai kilang pembuatan di Batu Gajah dan ini juga menjadikan Malaysia pengeluar kenderaan transit kereta yang paling maju di ASEAN," kata Bai.
Mengimbas kembali kepada 2017, jumlah dagangan dua hala antara Malaysia dan China mencapai USD96billion, dan China telah menjadi rakan dagangan terbesar Malaysia selama sembilan tahun berturut-turut.
"Tahun lepas, jumlah dagangan belum pulih kepada lebih daripada USD100billion tetapi suku pertama tahun ini meningkat sebanyak 15.6%. Kami telah mula melihat momentum pertumbuhan yang baik. Kami yakin jumlah perdagangan bilateral tahun ini akan melebihi USD100billion, "kata Bai.
Tahun lepas, jumlah eksport dari Malaysia ke China berjumlah USD54billion, menyumbangkan satu perempat daripada eksport bernilai USD200bilion di Malaysia. Tahun lepas, China juga merupakan sumber pelaburan langsung asing terbesar dalam sektor pembuatan Malaysia.
Duta Besar Bai: Durian Segar dieksport ke China
Duta Besar mendedahkan bahawa beliau baru-baru ini bertemu dengan Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani baharu, YB Salahuddin Ayub. Mereka bercakap tentang mengeksport durian segar ke China (kini hanya mengeksport isi beku).
"Selepas saya mengambil jawatan, saya mula mempromosikan eksport durian segar dari Malaysia ke China. Terdapat perkembangan positif dalam kerja ini baru-baru ini, saya percaya akan ada khabar baik tidak lama lagi," Bai percaya.
Terdahulu, Durian Bantal Emas dari Thailand telah dijual di laman Tmall "Rasa Daripada Thailand". Ia menjual lebih daripada 80,000 pesanan pada minit pertama, menyebabkan kekecohan. Duta Besar mengatakan bahawa durian di Malaysia lebih lazat, terutama Durian Musang King atau Raja Kunyit. Mereka sangat popular di pasaran China dan akan ada pasaran yang lebih besar pada masa depan.
Akhirnya, Duta Besar Bai mengesahkan sumbangan penting yang dibuat oleh MCCC dalam mempromosikan hubungan persahabatan, ekonomi dan perdagangan antara kedua-dua negara, dan khususnya acara tahunan MCCC, Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC). Duta Besar juga memuji MCCC kerana menerbitkan "Panduan Perdagangan dan Pelaburan Malaysia-China 2017", menganjurkan bengkel "Melabur di China" dan "Melabur di Malaysia" dan membawa usahawan tempatan ke China untuk mengambil bahagian dalam ekspo yang besar.
Para pemimpin MCCC yang turut serta dalam lawatan ini ialah Naib Presiden Pertama, Loo Kok Seong, Naib Presiden, Kerk Loong Sing, dan Ketua Setiausaha, Kevin Siah.

Kuala Lumpur: With the in-depth development of the Belt and Road Initiative, Malaysia and China will have more co-operation opportunities in brand-new agricultural products, food processing, and eco-tourism industries as Malaysia is an agricultural producing country and Guizhou Province in China is transforming into smart agriculture.
A delegation led by Shen Xinguo, Deputy Director of the Department of Commerce of Guizhou Province in China, paid a visit to the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) and said that through the Belt and Road Initiative, Guizhou Province hopes to promote its local products overseas. At the same time, it will explore ways to bring Malaysian agricultural products to Guizhou and other parts of China so that the Chinese can enjoy the unique taste of tropical agricultural products.
“We have high expectation that the Internet will break the barriers of the national borders, especially the mutual access to the economy and trade, and break the marketing model of the traditional marketing. In the future, it will be based on innovation and have more breakthroughs,” Shen said.
Vice President of the MCCC, Dato' Joseph Lim, is optimistic that the unique Malaysian food can quickly capture the hearts and minds of the people in Guizhou once the food is introduced by Guizhou Provincial Department of Commerce and local Chinese enterprises.
"Our country's agricultural products such as durian, bird's nest, and Bak Kut Teh are all well-known food that Malaysia is proud of. It is worth introducing in Guizhou Province," Dato’ Joseph said.
In-depth co-operation with Guizhou
At present, Guizhou Province imports more than 100 containers of agricultural products into Malaysia. Dato’ Joseph Lim said to take advantage of this opportunity to export the Malaysian products when returning the container to Guizhou to achieve a win-win situation.
Dato’ Joseph added that Malaysia and Guizhou Province can also jointly develop the tourism industry that uses natural ecology as a selling point. Next, Guizhou Province will improve the quality of services such as tourism, retirement, housekeeping, logistics, insurance, etc. This move and the ecotourism that Malaysia advertises with its rich natural ecology, rare species of wild animals, and unexplored primitive tropical rainforests constitute mutual benefits.

30 May 2018
Anhui: The China-ASEAN Belt and Road Cold Chain Logistics Economic Development Forum was successfully held on 30 May.
The President of Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC), Tan Yew Sing, was invited to the forum and a closed-door meeting on the China-ASEAN logistics cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative economic development.
“Based on the geopolitical differences of ASEAN countries, products are diverse and national conditions are mixed, and their consumption is highly complementary. At present, consumer behavior in various countries is an important element of economic development," Tan stressed.
According to Wang Heling, President of the Anhui Federation of Industry and Commerce, there will be USD 12 trillion logistics opportunities in the world in 2030, with 5 trillion business opportunities in Asia. The representatives in the meeting also expressed great confidence in the development prospects of the cold chain logistics industry.
The China-ASEAN Business Council (CABC) President, Xu Ningning, reported that the total trade volume between ASEAN and China last year accounted for USD 500 billion, while the target for 2020 was USD 1 trillion. At present, the ASEAN economies are one of China’s three largest foreign trade partners (the other two economies are the United States and the European Union). In the first quarter of this year, China’s bilateral trade between China and ASEAN was 20.4% higher than last year and the main strategy is interconnection. The rapid development of the cold chain logistics industry in the ASEAN region is inevitable in the near future.
Executive Vice President of China Cold-Chain Logistics Alliance (CCCA), Liu Jing, summed up the development trend and general situation of the cold chain logistics industry in his talk. First, it is informationization; in particular, the R&D and application of blockchain technologies. Second, it is systematization; from single channel to multi-integrated channel. Third, it is service outsourcing. The participation of external companies includes logistics companies (traditional courier, railway, airlines, warehouse network providers, etc.), e-commerce companies and logistics (self-storage industry development in real estate, logistics plants, etc.).
Various potential and forward-looking cold chain development trends have also been proposed in the meeting including cold chain logistics and large-scale cold chain logistics. The latter will soon embark on the IPO market to create high-quality development, technological innovation to create new business opportunities for cold chain, rapid changes in the function of cold chain logistics, development of integration of cold chain logistics, compliance of cold chain enterprises, environmental protection, sustainable model development and traditional cold chain logistics. Emerging cold chain logistics competition will change the overall industry.
Kuala Lumpur: The Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) supports the Tabung Harapan Malaysia (THM) fund set up by the current cabinet by urging its members to donate as it feels that the country’s economy is facing severe challenges of debt.
The MCCC issued a statement stating that since the Pakatan Harapan coalition came to power three weeks ago, it has implemented a number of measures to deal with the problem of the country’s high debt. In addition to the cabinet ministers taking the lead in a 10% pay cut, several state governments have also followed suit. Some individuals in the private sector have consciously perceived that they have a share of responsibility for the fate of the country and spontaneously raise funds to save the country. This is an attempt that has not been done in the past. It is evident that the people have high hopes towards the new government.
After chairing the second cabinet meeting on 30 May, the Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, announced that the government has found that many people are willing to donate to the government to solve the financial problems. The cabinet therefore agreed to set up a THM fund to receive the people's financial aid.
As our country is going through tough times now, the MCCC, as a non-governmental organisation, is also obliged to work together to urge its members to support the fundraising campaign. It is not the money that counts but the patriotism towards the country.

27 May 2018
Penang: President of Malaysian-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) Penang branch, Teh Eng Hin, pointed out that under the new global economic development situation, the economic and trade cooperation between Malaysia and China are facing an important period of opportunity. SMEs has become the source in promoting bilateral economic and trade relations between Malaysia and China.
Teh said that China's economic development has now entered another stage, and labour costs are not its competitive advantages. Many foreign-funded enterprises have shifted from China to Southeast Asian countries. China has transformed from a capital-importing country to a capital-exporting country. And Southeast Asian countries surrounding China have become one of the main targets of China's capital cycle.
“In this development trend, Malaysia needs to seize the opportunity to invest more resources and time. We cannot just say that 'ASEAN has great potential', but must turn it into a reality,” Teh said this in the 2018 General Assembly meeting this Sunday.
Teh said that as China's manufacturing industry moves towards the upper end of the value chain, labour-intensive enterprises have turned to ASEAN countries and have promoted the economic development of these countries. In attracting foreign investment, China and ASEAN used to be competitors. At present, the two are at different stages of the value chain.
"However, ASEAN has surpassed the total of China and India. Since ASEAN countries have a relatively young workforce, this development momentum may continue for many years," Teh said.
Teh emphasised that Malaysia and China have a very large commercial opportunity in terms of infrastructure co-operation, such as the high-speed rail (HSR) and industrial parks. Therefore, it is hoped that the Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, will review the large-scale investment projects based on national interests. At the same time, we must also discuss the development and potential of future cooperation to create a mutually beneficial development.
Teh admitted that Malaysia’s economic and financial conditions have experienced a serious deficit, which has caused uneasiness to domestic and foreign entrepreneurs and investors. Therefore, the national economic policy system must be reformed and restructured in a timely manner to ease the mind of the business people and foreign investors.
The First Vice President of the MCCC, Loo Kok Seong, said that the 8th Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC 2018) is a branded event of the Association. Each year, China and Malaysia will take turn in hosting the conference. Loo said that a total of 1,500 participants took part last year. In order to make the activities appear more pragmatic this year, the organisers of Malaysia and China only allow 200 entrepreneurs respectively to attend and will look for companies with potential.
Loo mentioned that the MCEC 2018 will be held in Nanjing on September 19. Interested entrepreneurs can register with Penang Branch. Due to the limited number of places, interested entrepreneurs are urged to register early.
In addition, the Malaysia International Inno-Tech Expo (MIIE) will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 23-25 November.

The President of MCCC, Tan Yew Sing, disclosed that the meeting today was only a verbal report on the ECRL project.
"We are urged to express our opinions and submit a report on the ECRL and Chinese investment,” Tan said this after meeting the former Finance Minister, Tun Daim Zainuddin, today.
When asked about Malaysia-China relations and foreign investment, Tan stressed that Malaysia should welcome foreign capital that is conducive to the country’s economic development to invest in Malaysia. At the same time, it should pay attention to the importance of Chinese capital and identify foreign capital that is beneficial to Malaysia.
Last week, there were rumours that foreign investors have lost confidence in the Malaysian economy. According to his observations, under the new government's policy, he is confident that foreign investors will return.

Johor: Cheou Siah Liang, President of the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce's (MCCC) Johor branch, pointed out that the branch had expectations on the new government in bringing more business opportunities to Malaysia and expanding the Malaysia-China trade relationship.
Cheou said that the coalition government expressed its desire to review China-funded co-operation before the election, but he was not worried.
“Reviewing China-funded co-operation projects will not have a negative impact on the companies of China. I have not received any news about Chinese investors taking a step back. Conversely, when China’s economy continues to develop, Chinese enterprises are more willing to come to Malaysia for investment,” Cheou stated this in the press conference yesterday.
Cheou mentioned that the branch has contacted the representatives of the new government of the State of Johor. He hopes that the new government will continue to co-operate closely with the companies of China after it has taken over.
Cheou believes that as long as the new government promotes the open policy that is more in line with the international market, it will enable the local government to further expand the Malaysia-China trade relationship.

KUALA LUMPUR: Kerajaan Malaysia yang baru adalah berkesan dan tepat pada masanya dalam pembaharuan. Dewan Perdagangan Malaysia China (MCCC) sangat menegaskan dan mengalu-alukan langkah-langkah pembaharuan yang dicadangkan oleh Perdana Menteri yang baru, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad dan pasukannya.
Di antara semua langkah, MCCC terutamanya mengalu-alukan keputusan tegas kerajaan baru kerajaan baru dalam menubuhkan lima pemimpin teratas untuk merancang pembaharuan jangka panjang dalam masa seratus hari dan usaha untuk menubuhkan satu lagi lima anggota dewan institusi pembaharuan (ISC) untuk menjalankan kajian menyeluruh terhadap mekanisme kerajaan, pembaharuan institusi dan kehakiman untuk membina Malaysia yang adil.
Walaupun semasa tempoh peralihan antara rejim lama dan baru, rakyat dapat merasakan bahawa kerajaan baru bertekad untuk menubuhkan sistem demokrasi yang mematuhi sistem perundangan antarabangsa. Kerajaan baru juga juga komited dalam menghukum rasuah dan berupaya mewujudkan mekanisme anti korupsi.
Pada masa yang sama, MCCC secara positif menantikan pengesahan semula kerajaan baru mengenai hubungan mesra antara Malaysia dan China, dengan menegaskan ia berkali-kali dan mengumumkan secara terbuka pengiktirafan dan sokongan untuk Inisiatif Sabuk dan Jalan negara China.
Kami mengalu-alukan perlantikan Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri yang baru secepat mungkin. MCCC akan sentiasa bekerjasama dengan agensi kerajaan lain di bawah Kementerian Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri (MITI) seperti Perbadanan Pembangunan Perdagangan Luar Malaysia (MATRADE) dan Lembaga Pembangunan Pelaburan Malaysia (MIDA) dalam menggiatkan semula pembangunan ekonomi negara.
Selepas kerajaan baru mengambil alih, ia membawa berita baik untuk rakyatnya bahawa ia akan menghapuskan Cukai Barang dan Perkhidmatan (GST) pada 1 Jun. MCCC menyokong perubahan dasar ini dengan sepenuh hati. Walau bagaimanapun, negara kita masih menghadapi situasi ekonomi yang mencabar dan beban hutang. MCCC menyeru kerajaan baru untuk meneguhkan konsep dasar pragmatik dan rasional, dan membuat keputusan yang kondusif untuk pengurusan yang mampan. Untuk meningkatkan ketelusan pentadbiran kerajaan, MCCC mengesyorkan kerajaan untuk menentukan penggantian hasil fiskal negara selepas penghapusan GST dalam bajet baru yang akan dirangka pada separuh kedua tahun ini.
Di samping itu, MCCC berharap bahawa Menteri Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan Malaysia yang seterusnya akan terus memanfaatkan hubungan persahabatan dengan China untuk mempunyai lebih banyak pencapaian dalam infrastruktur pelancongan, seperti melaksanakan melaksanakan pemprosesan visa yang cekap, membuka penerbangan terus, membangunkan detinasi pelancongan yang baru, melatih pemandu pelancong berbahasa Mandarin, menubuhkan papan tanda bahasa Mandarin, dan memperkenalkan perkhidmatan pembayaran mudah alih Alipay untuk bandar-bandar kedua dan ketiga. Pasaran menganggarkan bahawa Malaysia perlu menampung 4 juta pelancong China tahun ini dan 8 juta menjelang tahun 2020.
Pasaran pelancongan serantau yang menonjol memikat pelancong China, jadi kerajaan baru negara kita mesti cepat dalam pembangunan industri pelancongan dan cuba mengekalkan daya tarikan 'Malaysia, Truly Asia'.
Dengan peningkatan kesedaran orang ramai terhadap demokrasi, MCCC yang merupakan persatuan perniagaan bukan kerajaan dan multi-etnik yang bebas, juga menanti-nantikan kerajaan semasa mara ke arah dasar "kerajaan kecil, masyarakat besar". Ini akan menjadi lebih kondusif kepada masyarakat awam dan perusahaan swasta, terutamanya Perusahaan Kecil dan Sederhana Malaysia (PKS) dan usahawan muda dalam industri baru.
KUALA LUMPUR: The new Malaysian government is effective and timely in reforming. The Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) highly affirms and welcomes the reform measures proposed by the new Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his team.
Among all the measures, the MCCC particularly welcomes the new government’s decisive decision in establishing a five-member council of elders to plan a long-term reform within hundred days after coming into power and its effort in setting up another five-member council for institution reform (ISC) to conduct a comprehensive review of government mechanisms, institutional and judicial reform for a fair and just Malaysia.
Even during the transition period between the old and new regimes, the people can feel that the new government is determined to establish a democratic system that complies with the international legal system. The new government is also committed in punishing corruption and keen to establish anti-corruption mechanism.
At the same time, the MCCC positively looks forward to the new government’s reaffirmation of the friendly relationship between Malaysia and China, by stressing it numerous times and publicly announcing its recognition and support for the Belt and Road Initiative of PRC.
We look forward to the appointment of the new Minister of International Trade and Industry as soon as possible. MCCC will, as always, fully cooperate with the other government agencies under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), such as the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) and Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) in revitalising the country’s economic development.
After the new government took office, it brought good news for its people that it would abolish Goods and Services Tax (GST) on 1st June. The MCCC supports this change of policy wholeheartedly. However, our country still faces a challenging economic situation and debt burden. The MCCC calls on the new government to uphold the concept of a pragmatic and rational policy, and make a decision that is conducive to sustainable management. In order to improve the transparency of government administration, the MCCC recommends the government to specify the substitution of the national fiscal revenue after the elimination of GST in the new budget which will be drafted in the second half of the year.
In addition, the MCCC hopes that the succeeding Minister of Tourism and Culture will continue to capitalise on the friendly relations with China to improve further in the infrastructure of tourism, such as implementing efficient processing of visas, opening of direct flights, developing new tourist destinations, training Mandarin-speaking tour guides, establishing Mandarin signage, and introducing Alipay mobile payment services for second and third-tier cities. The market estimates that Malaysia will need to accommodate 4 million Chinese tourists this year and 8 million by 2020.
The regional emerging tourism markets beckon Chinese tourists, so the new government of our country must be quick on the development of the tourism industry and try to maintain the ‘Malaysia, Truly Asia’ charm.
With the increasing public awareness of democracy, the MCCC, which is an independent non-governmental and multi-ethnic business association, looks forward to the new government’s move towards a ‘small government, big society’ policy. This will be more conducive to civil society and private enterprises, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and young entrepreneurs in emerging industries.
