Analysts: Don’t only consider mega Chinese investments

PETALING JAYA: While Malaysia is seen to be adopting a more balanced approach with China, the country should continue to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) from there, especially investments that offer productive outcomes, say analysts.

“All these while, the focus has been on mega infrastructure projects. In fact, there are many other investment projects involving Chinese state-owned and private corporations in sectors such as manufacturing, services and agriculture, which we consider as productive investments,” Universiti Malaya (UM) Faculty of Economics and Administration professor of political economy Prof Dr Edmund Terence Gomez (pic) said.
