PUTRAJAYA: Visiting Chinese Vice-Premier Li Lanqing called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad at his office here yesterday. 

They discussed bilateral and regional issues, especially government-to-government ties, at the meeting, Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Dr Leo Michael Toyad said. 

Dr Mahathir and Li exchanged views on how to step up bilateral trade which stood at US$10bil (RM38bil) in 2001, he told reporters, here. 

They also discussed the sale of palm oil to China, investment in the less developed Asean countries and the prospects of Malaysia investing in the automotive industry in China. 

Toyad said Li’s visit would further strengthen Malaysia-China relations, especially in trade and Asean+3 ties. 

Li arrived on Saturday as the head of a 62-member delegation comprising government officials, media representatives and security staff for a five-day official visit to Malaysia. – Bernama
