MALACCA: China’s investment of US$10bil (RM43bil) in the Malacca Gateway project can further spur the growth of seaports in the country to be on par with harbours in the region, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

“China is recognised for its top 10 seaports in the world and Malaysia can anticipate its very own top-notch seaport with the expertise and fiscal commitment from China in unveiling a high-value harbour here,” he said.
