PUTRAJAYA: A delegation from the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, southern China, called on Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to discuss the development of the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP) and China’s Qinzhou Industrial Park.
The courtesy call on the Prime Minister took place at his office here yesterday.
Led by its secretary Peng Qinghua, the delegation presented Najib a bronze drum, which symbolises power, good fortune and blessing.
Members of the delegation included Guangxi vice-governor Lan Tianli, Guangxi Committee deputy secretary-general of the general office Lin Huaiyong, Guangxi People’s Government deputy secretary-general Wei Ran, Guangxi Foreign Affairs Office director-general Li Wenjie, Guangxi Beibu Gulf Port Group chairman Ye Shixiang, and Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Datuk Chai Xi.
National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference chairman Jia Qinglin is scheduled to jointly launch the MCKIP in Kuantan with Najib today.
The MCKIP was mooted in response to the China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park, which has been accorded national-level status by the Chinese State Council.
It will be the first industrial park in Malaysia to be jointly developed by Malaysia and China at an estimated gross development cost of RM1.5bil.
Scheduled for completion in two years’ time, it is expected to create 5,500 jobs with RM7.5bil in total investment by 2020.
During Jia’s four-day visit to Malaysia, he is also expected to sign a memorandum of understanding on the setting up of Xiamen University Malaysia campus in Salak Tinggi. — Bernama
