Published on


Qube Integrated Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the organiser of events and exhibitions, expects 10,000 visitors and at least 500 exhibitors at the Malaysia-China Summit 2024 (MCS 2024), which will take place on December 17-19, 2024.

Executive chairman Richard Teo stated that the summit has sparked significant interest among Chinese businesses, indicating a significant Chinese presence alongside delegations from Malaysia and Asean countries.

This engagement is central to the summit, which will include the largest trade and investment exposition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Malaysia-China bilateral ties, as well as a leadership conference.

“We have received a lot of strong interest and inquiries about participating in MCS 2024. “The response has been very encouraging and is gaining momentum,” he said in a statement today.

According to Qube, MCS 2024 will be held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre in Kuala Lumpur, in collaboration with the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade).

Following a successful networking session in Beijing yesterday, interest among large corporations and small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in China has surged, indicating a robust intention to participate.

In a keynote address at the networking session, Malaysian Ambassador to China Datuk Norman Muhamad stated that Chinese businesses’ enthusiastic participation reflects a deep mutual interest in fostering a future in which both nations thrive together.

“The door is wide open for Chinese industries to engage deeply with their Malaysian counterparts.

“The priority sectors of our economy are ripe with opportunity, and through mutual collaboration, we can achieve even more remarkable growth,” he went on to say.

Meanwhile, Matrade Beijing trade commissioner Niqman Rafaee M. Sahar stated that China has been Malaysia’s largest trading partner for the past 15 years, accounting for 17.1 percent of Malaysia’s total international trade. As of February 2024, total trade volume between the two countries had reached a staggering US$15.52 billion (RM73 billion).

“Apart from traditional sectors and manufacturing goods such as electrical and electronics, chemicals, liquefied natural gas, and others, there is a vast horizon to explore in areas of connectivity, future growth sectors, renewable, green and sustainable initiatives, and ICT and digital-related services,” he went on to say.

MCS 2024, themed ‘Prosperity Beyond 50’, aims to foster growth and sustainability through its five thematic pillars: ‘Future Tech, Future Knowledge and Experience, Future Mobility and Connectivity, Future Opportunity, and Future Growth’.

These include technology, professional services, economic zones, and manufacturing sectors, demonstrating the breadth of bilateral cooperation opportunities.
