Dr Wee wishes Malaysia economic prosperity in Year of the Dragon

KUALA LUMPUR: The year of the Dragon ushers economic prosperity for the country, says MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

He also prayed for political stability so that more rakyat-centric programmes can be put forward.

"Even though we are facing global uncertainties, we can overcome any challenges together.

"The Year of the Dragon symbolises more luck and sustenance, which is a good indicator for our economic development," he told reporters after the MCA Lunar New Year open house at the party’s headquarters here on Saturday (Feb 10).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who was also present at the occasion, extended well wishes to the attendees of the event.

"Thank you to Dr Wee (for inviting), Gong Xi Fa Cai and I pray the best for everyone," he said after greeting the guests here.

Also present were Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan, Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir, Agriculture and Food Security Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu and Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek.

MIC deputy president Datuk Seri M. Saravanan and former prime minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob were also present.

Last week, MCA secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon said the party invited all political leaders to its Chinese New Year open house.

Chong said the open house was in keeping with the party’s long-standing tradition to celebrate with the people and their leaders.
