KUCHING, Jan 31: The Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to the People’s Republic of China Dato Sri Tiong King Sing vows to work harder to deepen Malaysia’s connection and bilateral ties with China in trade and commerce.
He noted that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all levels of society have experienced difficult times with weaker purchasing power slowing down the local economy.
“But it is worth looking forward as the rising sun melts the cold winter (difficult times) to welcome the roar of the awakening Tiger (Year of the Tiger).
“The pace of Malaysia’s reopening and revival of business will usher in a more vigorous and prosperous economy,” he said in his 2022 Chinese New Year (CNY) message recently.
Tiong who is also the Bintulu MP and Dudong assemblyman also said the federal government was looking forward to the reopening of borders with other regional neighbours.
“As the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy to the People’s Republic of China, I will work ever harder to deepen the connection and bilateral ties with China in trade and commerce.
“We will gear up our efforts to strengthen our people-to-people bonds in bilateral cooperation for our mutual benefit,” he added.
Touching on the CNY celebration, he reminded the general public not to let their guard down and fail to take precautions, even though the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) have eased restrictions.
“Some of us are fortunate to be reunited with our loved ones during this Spring Festival, but there are also many of us who have lost loved ones to Covid-19.
“Some of us have also put safety first to celebrate this CNY remotely.
“In any case, I wish to appeal to everyone to take good care of themselves during this period, abide by the Covid-19 prevention standard operating procedures (SOPs) and let’s build a strong defence against the pandemic together,” he emphasised. — DayakDaily
