THE Malaysian Shandong Community Association is answering the call of its two leaders to develop trade links between China and South-East Asia by organising the 2014 Sino-Malaysia Chinese New Year Expo event.

This was revealed by the association’s president Datuk Dr Li Wei at a press conference recently.

He said the recent visits by Chinese president Xi Jinping and premier Li Keqiang’s prompted them to set up the association and organise the expo.

“Our association was formed a few months ago and we aim to have at least two activities a year ,” he said.

The expo will be held at Wisma MCA on Jan 17 and 18 featuring entrepreneurs from both China and Malaysia.

“There will be a variety of items including fruit, food, daily care products, machinery and furniture

“The expo will give the entrepreneurs a chance to network and develop business contacts and opportunities,” he said.

The participation fee for businesses is RM1,500.

They will also receive two tickets to attend the association’s Chinese New Year banquet at Thean Hou Temple on Jan 17 at 7.30pm which will feature entertainment performances including a fashion show.

Association advisor Frankie Gan also urged the public to visit the expo as it is being held during a timely period before the festive season.

“They can do some Chinese New Year shopping too,” he said.
