IPOH: According to a prominent member of the business community, increased Chinese investment will aid Malaysia in its transition to low-carbon development.

According to Datuk Liew Chee Ming, president of the Perak Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (PCCCI), with Chinese tourists returning to Malaysia, it is hoped that more investors will follow suit and establish factories here, particularly in high-tech industries like the production of electric cars.

China is a global economic power and an important player in all areas of the economy.

In his opening remarks at the PCCCI Chinese New Year event on Thursday at a hotel in this city, he expressed the hope that China’s economic recovery could help neighboring Asian nations, particularly Malaysia, grow (Jan 26).

He continued, adding that the state’s economic picture has been improved by the influx of foreign tourists, saying that PCCCI would collaborate with the state administration to attract additional investors to Perak.

Sustainable development of the economy, society, and environment are all goals of low-carbon development, which strives to lower carbon dioxide emissions.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad, Minister of Local Government Development Nga Kor Ming, Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation Chang Lih Kang, Taiping MP Wong Kah Woh, and Perak Police Chief Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri were among those present at the ceremony.
