Mr. Sun Shuqiang, Minister Counsellor of the Economic and Commercial Office at the Embassy of China in Malaysia, expressed full recognition of CECCM’s performance over the past year at the committee meeting and put forward three recommendations for the year 2024:

Firstly, it is essential to cultivate an atmosphere of “supporting enterprises, serving diplomacy”. Especially during the crucial time of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia, active efforts should be made to organize various events showcasing the image of China and Chinese enterprises. Simultaneously, full cooperation should be extended to the consulate to ensure the smooth execution of high-level visits between the two countries.

Secondly, adhering to the principle of “each excels, together splendid”, initiatives should be undertaken to facilitate industry information sharing and exchange of successful experiences. This will foster mutual support and cooperation among enterprises, creating a conducive business environment. Additionally, it will provide more development experiences and opportunities for enterprises seeking international expansion.

Lastly, there is a need to enhance the capability of “maintaining tradition while innovating and upgrading services.” Member enterprises, particularly those on the board, should fully leverage their professional strengths to focus on resolving key issues pertaining to the operational development of Chinese enterprises. By enhancing innovation and service capabilities, CECCM’s influence can be further strengthened.


President Mr. Zhang Min (current Honorary President of CECCM) previously presented the work report of CECCM for the year 2023 at the committee meeting and made the following conclusions:

1. Strengthening organizational development and member services: By enhancing organizational development and expanding the membership base, CECCM has solidified its work foundation. The number of members has increased from 263 in 2022 to 316. Through multimedia, multi-channel, and multi-platform promotional efforts, the visibility of both CECCM and its member enterprises has been further enhanced.

2. Enhancing government cooperation and international exchanges: CECCM has consistently strengthened cooperation with the Chinese Embassy in Malaysia, actively participating in a series of high-level exchanges and international conferences, including welcoming Chinese naval fleets and assisting domestic high-level visiting delegations. This has further promoted government cooperation and international exchanges.

3. Promoting socio-economic development between China and Malaysia: Through organizing participation in events such as “Invest in China Year” and the 10th anniversary celebration of the China-Malaysia “Twin Parks,” CECCM has facilitated cooperation and exchanges between enterprises from both countries.

4. Organizing and participating in social welfare activities: CECCM has actively organized voluntary blood donation drives, tree planting activities, and supported educational funds, among other meaningful social welfare activities. These initiatives have further enhanced CECCM’s influence and the social image of Chinese-funded enterprises.

5. Enhancing cohesion among members: Through organizing various cultural exchanges and industry seminars, CECCM has strengthened communication and cooperation among its members, further enhancing cohesion.

Mr. Zhang Min expressed gratitude to all member units for their support and assistance in CECCM’s work over the past year. He hopes that CECCM will continue to expand its influence in Malaysia, provide more assistance for the development of Sino-Malaysian enterprises, and believes that in the new year, CECCM and all member enterprises will achieve even greater accomplishments.
