BEIJING - MCA is positive that it can play a role in assisting Malaysian SMEs and entrepreneurs to expand to China.
Its president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the party could work together with the relevant government agencies and chambers of commerce in providing a platform for the businesses to venture into the biggest economy in the region.
"Some 300 representatives from the Malaysian business community, who are part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's delegation in his official visit to China, can see for themselves the abundance of opportunities here.
"The summit and forum organised during the trip provided a big stage for the businesses to grab a deal in China. Instead of them working on their own, MCA is prepared to come forward to offer our assistance," he said.
Liow noted that Najib had made full use of his trip to push for economic growth of the country.
"He has brought up issues and requests during bilateral meetings with Chinese leaders and received positive feedback and commitment," he said.
On the friendly ties between Malaysia and China, Liow said China acknowledged Malaysia's approach in resolving any dispute between two countries via discussions and talks.
"While we settle the disagreements, we work closely on areas like economy, culture and education for mutual benefits. China also commended that Malaysia has been providing a stable and safe environment for investments."
Liow said the visit had been very fruitful and historic and Malaysia was ready to take the bilateral ties to the next phase.
