Daim, Syed Mokhtar join MCA (delegation)

MCA president Ong Tee Keat leads a delegation to Beijing to make a political party-to-party call on China, his first after taking over the helm of the ever-fueding race-based organisation.

Positioned as an MCA outing, but among Ong's delegation members are two Umnoputras, former Finance Minister Daim Zainuddin and tycoon Syed Mokhtar Shah Syed Nor Al-Bukhary.
