Malaysia invites China's Cosco to set up transshipment hub


PETALING JAYA: Transport Minister Anthony Loke will pay a courtesy call to Cosco Shipping Line in China next month, in a bid to invite the shipping line to make Malaysia its transshipment hub in South-East Asia.

"In maritime industry, it is not just about port cooperation. What we need is a strong shipping network. Therefore, I would like to invite the Chinese government, in particular Cosco Shipping, to make Malaysia your major transshipment hub in Southeast Asia," he said in his speech at the opening ceremony of the International Forum on New Inclusive Asia.
