Malaysia set to host ‘One Belt, One Road’ global leadership summit come October

 As Malaysia and China celebrate nearly half a century of formal diplomatic relations, the Multinational Corporation Leadership Summit 2023 will be held here in October to foster new partnership opportunities between the two countries and beyond

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a global infrastructure development strategy adopted by the Chinese government in 2013 to promote economic development and inter-regional connectivity with the Chinese mainland via major infrastructure investments.

It is considered a centrepiece of the Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s foreign policy, with over 151 countries across the continents of Asia, Africa and Europe having signed up to the BRI as of January this year.

In Malaysia, the ambitious East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) linking the east and west coasts of the Malaysian peninsula is considered the flagship project of the BRI here.
