Malaysia Leader Says Firms That Hire Locals, Invest Are Welcome
The new Malaysian prime minister said his government won’t discriminate against Chinese companies who help the country’s economy, singling out Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. as a model investor.
“Mr. Jack Ma’s idea, Alibaba’s idea, is what we want. … He wants to train Malaysians, he wants Malaysians to do business, he wants to urge Malaysians to market in China — that’s fine,” Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad told the South China Morning Post in an interview published Wednesday.
