The establishment of partnership has opened the door to frequent mutual visits, and pragmatic and effective cooperation in various areas and forms.

From 2018 to 2019, Fujian and the Chinese embassy and consulates in Malaysia held two sessions of China-Malaysia Youth Exchange Program. In 2020, the Fujian-ASEAN Forum on Youth Exchanges and Cooperation took place online.

Fujian, a land of vitality and opportunity, is a place for innovation and entrepreneurship. It is working to grow and upgrade the digital economy, marine economy, green economy, and culture and tourism-based economy. Malaysian investors and entrepreneurs are warmly welcome to establish and expand their presence in the province, and work with Fujian to create more success stories in business cooperation and cultural exchanges. (ANTARA/Xinhua-AsiaNet)
