Tok Mat to meet counterpart in China during three-day trip to Beijing

PUTRAJAYA: Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan (pic) is undertaking an official visit to China from April 23 to 25, his first since he assumed office in December 2023.

The Foreign Ministry in a statement Tuesday (April 23) said the Minister would meet with his counterpart Wang Yi in Beijing to discuss bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.

The meeting would be an opportunity for both sides to take stock of the progress of bilateral cooperation and explore new areas of cooperation, the statement read.

This visit holds added significance as Malaysia and China celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between both countries, as well as 11 years since the elevation of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and China to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) in 2013, it added.

Mohamad was also scheduled to meet Liu Jianchao, Minister of the International Department of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee, and other leaders of the CCP as well as engaging with the Malaysian diaspora during the visit.

China has been Malaysia’s largest trading partner for 15 consecutive years. In 2023, the total trade between Malaysia and China was valued at RM450.84bil (USD98.80bil). - Bernama
