"It's our first time in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition," said Xu Ziqiu, general manager of China Shipbuilding and Offshore International, the international marketing and sales arm of CSIC.

"The Malaysian military and government provided us with warm welcome and good arrangement," Xu said.

Both Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin have visited the booth of CSIC, he told Xinhua.

Xu said he hopes to show the manufacturing capacity and products of CSIC to the Malaysian Navy and the military of other countries.

"We are looking forward to providing equipment to the Malaysian Navy and to other friendly countries," he added.
