Beijing, China October 31 2016 – Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak arrived in China this morning for a week long visit which is expected to focus on enhancing economic cooperation, chiefly the high speed rail link between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

China invested $356 million in Malaysia’s manufacturing sector in the first three months of 2016, making it the largest foreign investor in its manufacturing. Total bilateral trade between the two countries was valued at $68.9 billion during the same period of January to April.

This trip could see the signing of a contract to construct the high speed railway which China is expected to secure after Chinese firms completed a $7.3 billion port deal in the city of Malacca last month.
