Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh said: "We at YTL are very proud and honored to sponsor this very special celebration tonight. We can only ever understate the virtues of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She more than lived up to the dictum 'rex non potest peccare, the king can do no wrong.' May our Lord Jesus continue to bless her always."
Her Excellency British High Commissioner Vicki Treadell’s speech paid homage to The Queen as someone who has spanned history and played a part in its making, and praised the relationship between the UK and Malaysia. She also paid special thanks to YTL Corporation and the Yeoh family for sponsoring the event.
“The Queen has been part of the UK and Malaysia’s journey together as two nations. Today, our relationship is one of partnership, underpinned by strong two-way trade and investment education links, collaborations in scientific research, defense and security engagement.
In more recent decades we have seen groundbreaking Malaysian investment in Britain go from strength to strength whether in retail brands like Laura Ashley or in utilities like YTL’s Wessex Water or the regeneration of our city centres like Battersea’s transformation from a derelict and redundant site to a vibrant new destination in London. Our ties have never been deeper nor broader. Today we are partners in a modern age.”...
