PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry has pledged to cooperate with the Prime Minister's Special Envoy to China Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing to promote nation building and to attract more investors from China.

According to Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, the decision was made following a meeting between him and Tiong's team on Wednesday (June 23).

"Appreciate his views and suggestions on optimising the development of projects under the ministry's purview," said Dr Wee on Facebook.

Dr Wee said ideas to improve the national transportation system and to develop better transport and logistics connectivity over land, sea, and air between Malaysia and China were also discussed.

He added that Tiong was briefed on the RM44bil East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project, which was previously suspended when Pakatan Harapan was in power.

"We are both excited to see this rail connection bringing about economic development and making Kuantan and Terengganu the new favourite destinations for investors."

Dr Wee said he and Tiong agreed that the government must utilise the ECRL project fully for the interests of the nation and the people.

"Tiong is the first leader from East Malaysia to be the Prime Minister's Special Envoy to China.

"I will give him my full support and cooperate with him to promote nation building and attract more Chinese corporations to invest in Malaysia," said Dr Wee.
