Malaysians in Beijing happy with PM's teleconference
BEIJING -- In conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Malaysia's Ambassador to China, Datuk Iskandar Sarudinber and 25 Malaysians in Beijing celebrated the festive day with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor via a teleconference.
They comprised student representatives, Malaysians living here and Malaysian Embassy officials.
"Of the 15,000 Malaysians in China, there are 3,000 students who are mostly based in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou," said Iskandar during the teleconference.
Meanwhile, Tee May Chin, 23, a student representative from the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, said it was a happy occasion for them all.
"Especially when the whole of Malaysia is celebrating Hari Raya but we're far away missing our parents and country. Thank you for not forgetting us," she said.
Mohamad Sabri Sinal, 24, with the “students mobility programme” at the Beijing Sports University, remarked that the Chinese education system was based on success and it was capable of producing a young generation who were independent, highly disciplined and responsible.
Meanwhile, Malaysian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MAYCHAM) Chairman Godwin Cheng said even though they were living abroad, they were taking every opportunity to project a positive image of Malaysia.
"We count on you Datuk Seri, to bring out the very best of all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or beliefs, together we can and we will," he emphasised.
Another representative of Malaysians here, Loh Wee Keng, said with the many progressive and government transformation plans currently back home they were confident of a positive outcome for Malaysia.
"From our side, we shall continue to remain proud, and hold our heads up as Malaysians, and do our part for the country's development and growth," he said. - Bernama
