  • Chinese representatives have extended an invitation to Malaysia for a visit on 2 Apr 19 to conclude negotiations on the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) in the first week of Apr 19.
  • Daim said the project will have new commercial elements that would have a greater impact on Malaysian companies and people.
  • Commenting on the status of the discussion, Daim said Malaysia has received an invitation from the Chinese government to finalise the project on 2 Apr 19. “However, it could not be executed on the same day, instead in the same week.”
