JILID KUMINDING, Consul General
On this auspicious occasion of Malaysia’s National Day, it gives me great pleasure to join all Malaysians in Hong Kong SAR in sharing our joy and happiness with our Hong Kong friends.
This year marks the 55th anniversary of our National Day which was founded on 31st of August 1957.
May I take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the Government and the people of Hong Kong for the warm hospitality and continued support extended to the Consulate General which enable us to perform and execute all tasks and duties successfully in this vibrant city.
Malaysia and Hong Kong continue to enjoy excellent bilateral relations in all areas. This relationship has been cemented with growing bilateral trade which reached USD15 billion in 2011 and ranked Hong Kong as Malaysia’s top 10 biggest trading partner.
I am optimistic that our two places’ long standing ties in trade and investment, tourism and education, can be further expanded and diversified through partnerships between the public and private sectors.
I am also proud to note that a big number of Malaysian professionals and business circles are presently residing in Hong Kong, and have contributed positively to Hong Kong’s development and progress.
I look forward to a prosperous people to people relationship. My best wishes for a continuing bright future and excellent relations between Malaysia and Hong Kong SAR.
