PETALING JAYA: Former Hong Kong chief executive Leung Chun-Ying took time from his visit to Kuala Lumpur to meet a group of businessmen, opinion shapers and politicians.
The group was invited to a meeting with Leung in Kuala Lumpur Tuesday (Sept 10).
In a Facebook post Tuesday (Sept 10), MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said they talked about the current situation and also the future of Hong Kong, and shared views on Hong Kong's current economic challenges and social issues.
Leung had spent over an hour in the closed door meeting to share his thoughts and views on Hong Kong.
Others present included Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Steven Sim, Berjaya Corp Bhd founder Tan Sri Vincent Tan, PKR's Setiawangsa MP Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, Ecoworld chairman Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin and AirAsia Group (airlines) president Tharumalingam Kanagalingam, also known as Bo Lingam.
It is understood that Leung also held meetings with Malaysian officials at Putrajaya while here.
The meeting was organised by the Concorde Club, which was initiated by veteran newsmen Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai and Datuk Seri Azman Ujang.
Leung was Hong Kong chief executive from years 2012 to 2017.
He is now a vice-chairman of the National Committee of the People’s Political Consultative Conference.
The Concorde Club is an informal group for stakeholders, especially the media, to meet decision-makers and key government leaders.
It is similar to the Makati Club in Manila, and was named Concorde because the idea was mooted at Concorde Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
