World’s largest container ship makes maiden call to Malaysia

The world’s largest container ship Xin Los Angeles made its maiden call to Westports in Klang Port near Kuala Lumpur Sunday. “Xin LA’s arrival at Westports is a testimony of the growing bilateral trade between Malaysia and China,” Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak said. Over the past decade, trade between Malaysia and China has been growing, and Malaysia’s trade with China covers almost all sectors of the economy, he said at a ceremony for welcoming the arrival of the giant ship in Klang Port, some 40 kilometers west of Kuala Lumpur.
