KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim paid a courtesy call to the Republic of China’s Prime Minister, Li Qiang at the Great Hall of the People, Beijing on Saturday.
Anwar said discussions with Li Qiang had touched on many aspects and bilateral issues of mutual interests at the regional and international levels.
“Five Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) had been signed during my visit involving the strengthening of trade relations and economy between the two countries, food security, and agriculture,” Anwar said in his Facebook post.
Meanwhile, earlier in his Facebook post, the prime minister said, 18 MoUs between Malaysian companies and the Republic of China’s companies had been signed after the round table discussions with the business leaders from China on Saturday morning.
“The number of investments has reached RM170 billion being the highest from China to Malaysia in sectors focusing on green technology and digital economy.
“With the signing of the MoUs, I am confident it is capable to lift the Malaysian economy and ensures that it will have a “spillover effect” on the local small and medium industries,” Anwar said.– Malaysia World News
