On 2nd September 2022, China Enterprises Chamber of Commerce in Malaysia (CECCM) and the Malaysian Youth Council (MYC) held a dialogue meeting on the future cooperation between Chinese enterprises and the Malaysian Youth Council. President of CECCM, Zhang Min, First secretary of the China Embassy in Malaysia, Tang Tang and representatives from the CECCM met with the Malaysian Youth Council President Mohd Izzat Afifi Abd Hamid, Secretary General, Hasnul Haniff Harun, Vice President, Datuk Syed Osman and others committee members.
President of CECCM, Zhang Min welcomed the visit of the Malaysian Youth Council (MYC) and stated that many Chinese companies have been facing the problem of talent shortage due to the pandemic in the past two years. CECCM has been working with the University of Malaya and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman to provide a platform for Chinese companies to reach out to Malaysian talent, helping them to meet the demand for a wide range of local young talent. He said that Chinese companies are willing to provide employment opportunities for talented Malaysian youths, and hopefully both sides are committed to learning from each other, maintaining communication and promoting more opportunities for future cooperation and exchange.
President of MYC, Mohd Izzat Afifi Abd Hamid said that China is a strong country and its technological development is increasingly innovative and world-renowned. Many young Malaysians hope to study in China or apply for jobs in Chinese companies to learn more about advanced knowledge and technology. The Malaysian Youth Council is willing to work with the CECCM to organize visits and exchanges to contribute to China and Malaysia in various ways.
The two sides reached a consensus at the meeting to discuss the future cooperation that can be developed in Malaysia. CECCM is willing to maintain close relationship with the Malaysian Youth Council to develop more platforms for Chinese enterprises in Malaysia and Malaysian youth, including organizing job fairs with the Malaysian Youth Council to attract young Malaysian talents to work for Chinese enterprises. At the same time, the two sides will play an active role in encouraging Chinese enterprises in different industries to provide opportunities for Malaysian youths to study, visit, tour or research in China. Both sides also look forward to organizing different forms of charity or cultural exchange activities in the future to fully explore the exchange potential of both sides and deepen the opportunities for mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation.
