BEIJING - China has opened huge opportunities for Malaysian businessmen who want to foster economic cooperation for mutual benefit, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The prime minister said the trust between Malaysia and China is at the highest level making it easier for Malaysian businessmen to foster economic cooperation than ever before.

"The warmth on the part of China seems to open their door as wide as possible," he told Malaysian journalists at the end of the One Belt, One Road Forum for Economic Cooperation here, Monday.

Najib said while here, he met with Malaysian businessmen who told him it is easier to discuss with their counterparts in China.

"They seem to hold the keys to open doors that previously had so many obstacles. The benefits (Malaysia-China close ties) are difficult to describe."

Najib said Malaysia enjoys economic benefits with China as it is among the early countries to commit to the One Belt, One Road initiative inspired by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"These are exciting times (for Malaysia).

This is why people are jealous of us for having this link. That is why people criticised us for the wrong reasons. It is not rationally based."

Najib said

BEIJING - Nine business agreements were signed here on Sunday between Malaysian and Chinese companies with proposed investments estimated at US$7.22 billion (about RM31.3 billion).

The memoranda of understanding (MoUs) are for various sectors particularly construction, agriculture, stock exchange, infrastructure and port and airport cooperation.

The signing ceremony for the various agreements was witnessed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
