On August 19, 2018, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad took part in a forum organized by the China Entrepreneur Club (CEC). The forum was hosted by Jack Ma, Chairman of China Entrepreneur Club and Executive Chairman of the Alibaba Group. Nearly 400 delegates attended the forum, including Influential Chinese entrepreneurs, Malaysian officials, business delegates and the media. The forum focused on economic and business cooperation. The participants shared perspectives on cooperation in the areas of artificial intelligence, agriculture, traditional manufacturing, tourism and the Belt and Road Initiative. Malaysia is recognized as an important economic and trade partner for China. Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, well-known as the "engineer of modern Malaysia", is well known to the Chinese people.

Jack Ma expressed his appreciation and warmly welcomed the Malaysia Prime Minister. He said that Prime Minister Mahathir's 'Multimedia Super Corridor', known as the MSC in Malaysia, inspired his entrepreneurial confidence and Alibaba. In the 44 years since the China - Malaysia diplomatic relations establishment, Mahathir has served as prime minister for 22 years. Malaysia has become an important economic and trade partner for China. The two countries should join hands to enter the digital economy era now. This is also a huge opportunity for enterprises in China and Malaysia.

In his speech, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir emphasized that, both the past Maritime Silk Road and the current bilateral economic and trade relations, brought new development opportunities to the enterprises in Malaysia and China, and also brought more job opportunities and quality goods to the people. He hopes that more Chinese entrepreneurs can invest in Malaysia. Malaysia will continue to maintain friendly relations with China and to extend businesses in the Chinese market.

A 40-minute Q&A session was held following Prime Minister Mahathir's speech. The 92-year-old Mahathir engaged in lively communication with Chinese entrepreneurs on investment opportunities, market development, cultural exchanges, the Belt and Road Initiative, as well as socially and economically sustainable development.

China maintains close economic and trade ties with Malaysia. Statistics show that China has been Malaysia's largest trading partner for nine consecutive years. It has also been Malaysia's largest manufacturing investor for two consecutive years, and its largest source of tourism for six consecutive years. Through this forum, Chinese entrepreneurs and political and business leaders in Malaysia have deepened their understanding and enhanced mutual recognition of business and cultural values.
