The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has drawn attention to the economic relationship between China and Malaysia.

More than half of the 239 passengers on board flight MH370 were Chinese nationals, and their families have strongly criticised the way Malaysia handled the plane's disappearance.

Many in China are already calling for a boycott of all things Malaysian. Chinese tourists are the third largest group of visitors to Malaysia but their numbers are now expected to drop by 40%.
