KUALA LUMPUR -- China and Malaysia are expected to seal several economic deals when senior Chinese leader Jia Qinglin arrives next week, reinforcing the growing ties between the two states.
One of them will likely be for three Chinese companies to set up factories in the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP), which will be jointly inaugurated by Jia — the outgoing head of China's top advisory body, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference — and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak yesterday.
