On the morning of August 19th, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, Minister of Foreign Affairs Saifuddin Abdullah, Minister of Agriculture Salahuddin Ayub, and Minister of International Trade and Industry Darell Leiking visited the DJI Beijing Branch. The Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia, Mr. Bai Tian, and Mr. Luo Zhenhua, President of DJI, received the visitors.
