Huazong is optimistic Ouyang can help boost bilateral ties between China-Malaysia

The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) was both convinced and hopeful that the new China ambssador to Malaysia Ouyang Yujing, who has vast experience in diplomatic and cross-border affairs, would be able to take the bilateral relationship between China and Malaysia to the next level.

Its President Tan Sri T.C Goh expressed this while welcoming Ouyang’s arrival in Malaysia on last Sunday, to assume duties.

He especially hoped that bilateral trade between Malaysian and China could achieve greater height under Ouyang’s stewardship and continuous support from the China Embassy in Malaysia.

He acknowledged that throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, China has played a leading role in fighting and containing the pandemic, besides being a catalyst to post-pandemic economic recovery for ASEAN countries, Malaysia included.

China and Malaysia have enjoyed a strong trade relationship even during the pandemic. It was the primary destination for Malaysian goods in 2019, with exports valued at 140.9 billion ringgit (US$34.85 billion) or 14.2 per cent of the Southeast Asian nation’s overall exports.

Ouyang, 55, who is the 16th China ambassador to Malaysia was China’s director-general of the Department of Boundary and Ocean Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for more than a decade, before taking over from his predecessor Bai Tian as the new ambassador.

He also has extensive involvement in China’s land-border negotiation work with Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, as well as border trade negotiations with Laos, Vietnam, and Myanmar. He was described by Beijing watchers as a seasoned-and-capable official.

In a statement issued today, Goh said he was convinced that Ouyang who had visited Malaysia in the past, will be able to play a significant role towards boosting cooperation between Malaysia and China in various sectors.

Goh also recognized that with China’s peaceful-and-steady rise as an economic powerhouse in the world, and a leader in technology, medicine, education and culture, it would be wise for Malaysia to consider China as a strategic partner, and to take full advantage of China’s robust-and-transformative Belt and Road Initiative to help propel the economy of Malaysia.

He noted that Malaysia is one of the earliest ASEAN nations that established bilateral relationship with China, and the latter had been a main source for foreign direct investments for Malaysia, all these years.

“Despite the ongoing pandemic, bilateral trade between the two countries remained strong, with an encouraging trade volume of USD 103.93 billion for the last 10 months of this year. We believe, with continuous and closer cooperation between governments of the two nations, the abovementioned figure can be further boosted.

“And with the Five-year Program for Economic and Trade Cooperation between Malaysia and China now entering its second phase, we believe China would be a significant catalyst for Malaysia’s economic recovery, post pandemic,” he said.

Goh who is also the President of The Federation of Chinese Associations Sabah (FCAS) also welcomed Ouyang’s maiden statement upon his arrival here, that he will do his best “to sow more beneficial seeds for the development of China-Malaysia relations to a new level, so that the two countries will always be good neighbours, good friends, good partners and good brothers.”

“And likewise, we in Huazong will continue to extend our full cooperation and support to Ambassador Ouyang and all his colleagues in the China Embassy here, treating them like our good neighbours, good friends, good partners and good brothers,” he concluded.
