Concept can enhance ties between Malaysia and other countries and boost economic bonds
The 1Malaysia concept, if accepted and practised by all Malaysians irrespective of their race, can make the country even more respected and honoured.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who declared open the 26th Malaysia Chinese Cultural Festival at the town square here last night said as a result of respect and honour, ties between Malaysia and other countries can be enhanced to boost economic relationships.
“Because of 1Malaysia, China in particular had become very close to the country. I was made to understand that China has allocated a big amount to be invested in this country,” he said, adding that this relationship would continue to be maintained.
In fact, Najib said, Malaysia is regarded by China as an important business partner.
And if our economy progressed well, it would improve the socio-economic standard of the people, he said.
