DALIAN, the industrial port city in the northeastern Chinese province of Liaoning, proposes to build a sector to showcase Malaysian investment, according to reports. The so-called 'Malaysian city' would be located in Jin Zhou district of Dalian and would highlight successful Malaysian enterprises dealing with business, trade, industry and tourism. The idea for the sector came during meetings between a Malaysian business delegation and Dalian government officials, said Dalian's deputy mayor Wang Shijia. To date, these meetings have led to the establishment of a one square kilometre 'property garden'. There are now more than 20 Malaysian joint ventures operating in Dalian. Malaysian investment represents 1.5 per cent of the total foreign investment in Dalian, double last year's, according to city officials.
