China and Malaysia have brought bilateral relationship to a new starting point, and they share the aspiration to carry it forward to future generations, Chinese Premier Li Qiang said Wednesday.

Li made the remarks in his keynote speech when attending a reception celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia and the Year of China-Malaysia Friendship with Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

About 500 guests from all walks of life in China and Malaysia were invited to the reception.

Li said that as Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out, China and Malaysia are neighbors with a millennium-old friendship, friends connected by heart, and partners for win-win cooperation.

Over the past 50 years of diplomatic ties, the two countries have committed to independence of strategies, win-win cooperation, mutual support and cultural affinity, Li said, adding that the development of this relationship offers many important experience and inspirations. Li said "friendship" is a word that carries great weight, something especially precious today. The world should put more emphasis on mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation, and completely discard the zero-sum game thinking and practices, Li said, adding that the world should also try harder to stand in others' shoes, and adhere to the principle of "do not do to others what you don't want others to do to you”.

Li said that the world should champion the spirit of friendship, call on and rally more from across the world to join hands and cross over to a better, shared future.

Li stressed that friendship remains the defining feature of China-Malaysia relations.

The two sides should enhance traditional friendship, synergize development strategies, deepen exchanges and mutual learning, strengthen solidarity, and pursue wide-ranging cooperation in the context of building a China-Malaysia community with a shared future, so as to deliver more benefits to the people of the two countries and jointly build a peaceful, safe and secure, prosperous, beautiful, amicable and harmonious home in Asia, Li said.

In his speech, Anwar said that since the two countries' leaders made the decision to establish diplomatic ties 50 years ago, Malaysia-China relations have enjoyed vigorous development, bringing huge benefits to the people of the two countries.

Malaysia has always viewed its relations with China from a strategic height, he said.

Anwar said Malaysia supports the Belt and Road Initiative proposed by President Xi, and is willing to work with China to deepen cooperation in various fields, promote major projects such as the East Coast Rail Link, and strengthen exchanges and mutual learning among civilizations, so as to jointly open a new era of Malaysia-China relations.

Prior to the reception, Li and Anwar visited a photo exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Malaysia and presented souvenirs to each other.

Chinese Premier Li Qiang has called for efforts to push forward high-standard opening-up and actively explore and innovate to motivate more momentum and vitality, so as to advance high-quality development in further deepening reform comprehensively.

Li, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks during a research trip to north China's Tianjin Municipality on Monday.

Li first visited the core area of the Tiankai Higher Education Innovation Park, where he learned about the park's construction and operation, and had talks with researchers and heads of sci-tech financial institutions as well as start-ups.

Saying that the key to fostering new growth drivers and developing new quality productivity lies in reform and innovation, Li underlined staying focused on integrated development of sci-tech innovation and industrial innovation, therefore building a more efficient and attractive sci-tech innovation platform.

He called for more support for small and medium-sized sci-tech firms and incentives for sci-tech personnel in terms of policies and funding, so as to promote the application of scientific and technological advances, and accelerate the development of new quality productivity.

The park, inaugurated in May, was established through the collaboration of Tianjin-based top-notched universities including Tianjin University and Nankai University.

Li then visited the branch of the world-leading elevator manufacturer Otis and CDHorizon, a world's top integrated equipment operation service provider, in the Binhai New Area.

Li urged efforts to make good use of policies for supporting the large renewal of equipment and to support enterprises in promoting the new application of artificial intelligence, so that more enterprises and products with core competitiveness can compete to emerge.

The premier also highlighted innovative use of financial leasing and other financial instruments, thus better serving the real economy.

Li called on the Binhai New Area to take the lead in better stimulating impetus and vitality in deepening reform, underlining the reform in institutions and mechanisms of the pilot free trade zone, financial innovation and development, and high-level opening up to the outside world.

Li also emphasized the need to accelerate the integrated development of ports, industries and cities by leveraging strengths and characteristics, in order to integrate resources and enhance their role in promoting the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

Fully acknowledging Tianjin's achievements in socio-economic development, Li expressed his hope that the municipality will forge ahead and constantly scale new heights in promoting high-quality development.
