Wireline telco China Telecommunications Corporation (CT) and CDMA mobile operator China Comservice Corporation (CCS) have launched their first branch in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to build on the already-strong economic relationship between Malaysia and China, said the companies.
"The establishment of this Malaysian branch marks an important milestone in our company's journeys in overseas expansion," said China Telecom (Hong Kong) International executive vice president, Tan Xu. "Through the setting of this branch, we aim to further complement the telecommunication industry in Malaysia."
Meanwhile, China Comservice Corporation's vice president, Liang Shi Ping, said: "CCS is committed to be the leading one-stop telecommunication service provider by offering a complete range of solutions and services such as the design and planning of telecommunication network, quality control and operation support to our clients within this region."
The new branch has created a group with increased product range as well as enhanced technical service, R&D and a wider reach, they said. China is currently Malaysia's biggest trade partner, with trade between the two countries worth RM146.53 billion [US$462.39 billion].
"We appreciate the strong support from the Malaysian government," said China Telecom Malaysia president, Lynn Dai. "The political stability, well developed infrastructure, highly skilled ICT workforce and attractive tax incentives have made Malaysia the ideal choice for us."
"Through the years, offering customers and partners our top quality solutions is integral to us; and the new branch combines the strengths of both companies providing great opportunities for our customers and our talented workforce in Malaysia," said China Comservice Malaysia vice president, Benny Li.
In addition, Tan Xu pledged full commitment from China Telecom in ensuring the success of this investment and hoped that this would also lead to a long-lasting relationship as a global partner of Malaysia.
