【看英文中國郵報學英文】因應中美貿易戰,駐馬來西亞台北經濟文化辦事處代表洪慧珠鼓勵台灣企業再將資金撤出中國後可以選擇投資馬來西亞

Taiwan entrepreneurs who repatriate their funds from China due to the U.S.-China trade war are encouraged to invest in Malaysia, said Anne Hung, the representative of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia.

洪表示希望可以透過貿易拉近台灣與大馬的關係。

This also helps to promote trade ties between Malaysia and Taiwan, she added.

洪慧珠指出,因應中美貿易戰,許多台灣企業從中國撤資後轉而將投資目標放在越南及印尼。然而,越南市場已經太過密集,洪表示台灣政府正在鼓勵企業投資其他東南亞市場,包括馬來西亞。

“Many Taiwanese entrepreneurs have withdrawn from China’s market due to China-U.S. trade war and switch their investment focus to Vietnam and Indonesia. However, the Vietnamese market is too hot now. Taiwan is encouraging them to switch to other Southeast Asia countries. Malaysia is one of them,” she said.

洪慧珠是在馬台經貿協會五周年晚宴暨台灣青年遊學團閉幕式發表此言論

Hung said this at the fifth anniversary dinner of Malaysia-Taiwan Trade Federation Association cum the closing ceremony for Taiwan youth participating in a study tour to visit Malaysia.

洪說道,台灣方面願意支持台企在撤出中國後轉投資大馬,並說歡迎馬來西亞業界人士提供相關資訊。

Taiwan is willing to support locals to invest in Malaysia after repatriating from China, she said, adding that Malaysians in business circles are welcome to furnish relevant information.

洪表示,政府已經對從中國撤資的台企提出投資計畫,將近一百位台企已經通過計畫審核,總投資額來到兩百億美金。

“We have introduced investment plans following repatriation of funds from China.  Applications made by close to 100 local entrepreneurs have been approved so far with close to US$20 billion of investment funds involved,” she said.

洪說道,三年前新南向政策開始,台灣與大馬的互動及資源分享有顯著的增加。

Hung said since launching the New Southbound Policy three years ago, interaction and sharing of resources between Taiwan and Malaysia have made significant progress.

洪指出,台灣一直是大馬的第四大外資,去年的雙邊貿易額是兩百億,累計投資是十二億美金。

She said Taiwan is still the fourth largest foreign direct investor in Malaysia. Bilateral trade volume between Taiwan and Malaysia hit US 20 billion last year with an accumulated investment of US1.2 billion.

洪慧珠說道,雙方在高科技與農業這兩項有著密切合作,並表示為了加強連結,辦事處每年都會邀請各產業的領導者來參加活動

“We have close collaboration in high-end technology and agriculture sector. Each year we invite industry leaders from various sectors to attend activities in order to enhance ties,’’ she said.

在馬台經貿協會會長拿督斯里榮立局紳 (Dato Seri Tang Ying Lik)的領導下,洪慧珠表示協會舉辦的活動已經獲得當地華人社群的支持,其中一項成就是從去年開始的台灣青年大馬遊學團

Under the leadership of Tang Ying Lik, president of the Malaysia-Taiwan Trade Federation Association, she said activities organised by the association had garnered support from local Chinese community and friends, including the study tour for Taiwan youth to visit Malaysia started last year.

洪慧珠指出,台灣總統對兩國的青年交換計畫有很高的期待,並表示這22位台灣青年將在九天的大馬遊學中學習到很多,也能同時了解到大馬華人的困難還有維護華人文化的使命。

“The president has high expectation on exchange programmes for youth in Taiwan and Malaysia. We believe that the 22 Taiwanese youth would learn more about Malaysia in the nine-day tour and get to know the struggles of local Chinese and their mission in defending Chinese culture,’’ she said.

拿督斯里榮立局紳表示,馬台經貿協會的使命從未改變過,儘管有族裔的區別,協會對推廣馬台間的貿易始終不遺餘力。

Tang said since its inception the Malaysia-Taiwan Trade Federation Association has not changed its mission. It is making contribution to promote trade between Taiwan and Malaysia regardless of race.

拿督斯里榮立局說道,他一直強調若大馬要邁向工業4.0,需要像台灣這樣的高科技產業重要夥伴。

“I always stress Malaysia needs strategic partner in high-end technology such as Taiwan as it moves towards Industrial 4.0,” he said.

在延續華人文化的任務上,拿督斯里榮立局紳指出華人教育團體、社群與媒體是站在同一陣線上的。

On the journey of defending Chinese culture, Tang said the Chinese education groups, Chinese community and media are to be standing on the same line.

拿督斯里榮立局紳說華人教育團體、社群與媒體不該分開,並表示他將向來大馬的台灣青年分享當地華語報社星州網,以利台灣青年了解華人社群背景。

“The Chinese education groups, Chinese community and media should not be separated. I will share local Chinese newspaper Sin Chew Daily with the Taiwanese youth visiting Malaysia for them to know the background of Chinese community,” he said.
