Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Thursday met with Hua Jianmin, vice chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC), and expressed his willingness to further expand cooperation between Malaysia and China.

Najib highly praised Malaysia-China friendly relations and China's achievement in economic development. He said that China's development had created opportunities for Malaysia and Malaysia is willing to further explore cooperation with China in various fields including economy, trade, finance, culture and tourism.

Malaysia had remained China's biggest trading partner among ASEAN countries for three consecutive years with bilateral trade in 2010 hitting 74.2 billion U.S. dollars, he said, adding that it indicated that Malaysia-China trade was of huge potential and rosy prospects.

China and Malaysia are friendly neighbors and China is willing to join hands with Malaysia in advancing bilateral strategic cooperation, said Hua. He said the exchange and cooperation between NPC and Malaysian Parliament would further strengthen public opinions and social basis in developing relations between the two countries.

On the same day, Hua also met separately with the Speaker of Malaysia's House of Representatives Pandikar Amin and the Senate President Abu Zahar.
