The delegation made up of media friends from Perak under the Perak Media Sports and Welfare Club, will be in Beijing, China for five days, beginning March 15. It will be a mission to foster closer ties with their counterparts in Beijing, a crucial move as March 8, 2015 marks the first anniversary since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing during a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
