LANGKAWI, Malaysia, March 26 (Xinhua) -- The China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) made its debut in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition here in Malaysia on Tuesday.

The company has brought its latest product models, including submarine, landing platform dock and frigate, to the four-day show started Tuesday.

"It's our first time in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition," said Xu Ziqiu, general manager of China Shipbuilding and Offshore International, the international marketing and sales arm of CSIC.

"The Malaysian military and government provided us with warm welcome and good arrangement," Xu said.

Both Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin have visited the booth of CSIC, he told Xinhua.

Xu said he hopes to show the manufacturing capacity and products of CSIC to the Malaysian Navy and the military of other countries.

"We are looking forward to providing equipment to the Malaysian Navy and to other friendly countries," he added.

CSIC is the largest manufacture of marine products in China with more than 100 subsidiaries including seven shipyards and 28 R& D institutes, producing naval products such as submarines, destroyers and frigates, according to the company.

Xu admitted the shipbuilding industry is not yet fully recovered from the global financial crisis. "So we wish to come out of the country to see if we can tap into the global market," he said.
