Following is full text of the interview:

It will be the 63rd Anniversary for the founding of the People's Republic of China in couple of days' time. Ever since the founding of China, especially after over 30 years of reform and opening up, China and Chinese people have made significant achievements in the fields including economic growth, social developments, people's welfare and socialist modernization. At present, China becomes the second largest economy and the largest emerging market of the world. The Chinese Government is insisting people-oriented ideology and carrying out positive policies and measures addressing to issues including housing, goods prices, social security, healthcare and education in order to bring the benefit of development to the people and promote social fairness and justice. I am confident that China will achieve long-term, steady and robust economic development and make greater contribution to the world economic recovery.

China and Malaysia are good neighbors, with our friendship dating back to the ancient times and deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples. At present, I am proud to say that the China-Malaysia relationship is currently at its best period in history. We have established strategic cooperative relations. Our economic and trade ties are increasingly close. China is the largest trading partner of Malaysia. Last year, the bilateral trade volume broke through USD 90 billion, reaching a new historical high level. This year, we have made more substantial achievements in bilateral relations. There have been frequent high-level exchanges between us. And we have signed landmark agreements on the Panda Conservation Cooperation and the Kuantan Industrial Park. The China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park has been officially launched. The Youth Exchange Visits for 100 delegates from each country have also been conducted.

I was appointed as Ambassador to Malaysia in 2010 and arrived here in July that year. In my days in Malaysia, this country impressed me with its beautiful and richly endowed land, its diligent, broad-minded and enterprising people and its splendid, distinctive and diversified culture. I notice that the Malaysian Government is carrying out measures and policies that will promote unity and benefit people, such as 1 Malaysia slogan, Government Transformation Programme and Economic Transformation Programme. Both China and Malaysia are in vital phase of development, shouldering the important task of developing economy and improving the livelihood of people. China would like to join hands and work together with Malaysia to further deepen our strategic partnership, and to embrace a brighter future of the bilateral relationship.
