 Soon after China identified Malaysia's Malacca as part of its 21st Century Maritime Silk Route economic belt (MSR), an international shipping port is being planned for the state.
 
The existing port in Malacca would be expanded to meet international standards, informed the Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, as per a report in the Star.
 
A vast opportunity awaits Malacca under MSR, and the government will start with the port expansion as part of the initiative, the minister added.
 
The authorities are still planning the project to make Malacca port part of the Chinese MSR initiative, and Liow has discussed this with his counterpart from China. He added that his ministry had suggested that cruise liners ferry tourists from China directly to Malacca through the MSR maritime route.
 
Liow said the MSR was mooted by Chinese President Xi Jinping as China was eager to increase its maritime cooperation and explore trade opportunities.
