China is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with Malaysia, maintain regional stability, and raise relations to a new level, Premier Li Keqiang told Syed Hamid bin Syed Jaafar Albar, chairman of Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission, in Beijing on May 4.

Malaysia, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), has been China’s biggest trade partner in the group for seven years, and China is Malaysia’s No 1 trade partner, the Premier said.

Collaboration on infrastructure has been the most important component of Sino-Malaysian cooperation, Premier Li said.

He added that China has gained extensive experience in building infrastructure, especially in the construction of high-speed rail — through large-scale construction and operation. He said that Chinese government supports the high-speed rail project between Malaysia and Singapore, and is keen to participate in the bidding process.

Syed Hamid said that Malaysia is promoting transformation in public transportation, and believes China can play an important role in the endeavor. He said that Malaysia is willing to strengthen mutually-beneficial cooperation with China and promote bilateral relations.
