KUALA LUMPUR: Both the Chinese Dream and Malaysia’s Vision 2020 are closely intertwined and share the same goals of achieving economic prosperity, said Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia Huang Huikang.
China’s dream, he stressed, was striving for peace and happiness, which was what they wanted to give to the world.
“Our dream brings opportunity and not threats, peace and not instability, and development instead of regression while Vision 2020 wants to bring Malaysia to the status of a developed country,” said Huang at the 40th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and Malaysia Symposium here yesterday.
The two countries, said Huang, intended to improve their relations through collaboration and to continue enhancing national security and encouraging cultural exchange.
“We hope to work together with Malaysia to upgrade the China-Asean Free Trade Zone, promote regional economic partnership negotiations and the building of an inter-linked 21st century maritime silk road’ infrastructure,” he said.
Huang said he believed continuous efforts from both countries had strengthened ties, adding that the goal to achieve bilateral trade of US$160bil (RM515bil) by 2017 was possible.
The efforts mentioned by Huang included the missing Flight MH370 incident in which he said that Malaysia was China’s ally in difficult times.
“This year, both countries faced a test but we got to know each other better and braved the situation together,” he said.
The ties between China and Malaysia, he stressed, would not be affected by any incident.
On the missing MH370 plane, Huang vowed that both the Chinese government and people would spare no effort in searching for the aircraft.
