KOTA KINABALU: The Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Kota Kinabalu will work with the State Government to further enhance the Malaysia-China friendship, facilitate trade cooperation and promote exchanges between Sabah and China.

Its Consul General, Liang Caide said he was pleased to serve in Sabah, especially when the bilateral relation between Malaysia and China was currently at its best in history.

“To serve as the Consul General in Kota Kinabalu as the cooperation in various fields between Sabah and China has entered the fast lane is an honour and a heavy responsibility.

“There are so much that we can do,” Liang said in a press release issued on his courtesy call on the Chief Minister Tan Sri Musa Haji Aman here on Tuesday.

Both Musa and Liang discussed about cooperation projects, tourism industry and establishing sister city ties in the meeting.

The Chinese consulate in its press release said Musa acknowledged the contributions of the consulate in promoting exchanges and cooperation in various sectors between Sabah and China and would continue to render his support to the consulate.

The Chinese consulate said Musa also welcomed Chinese corporations to invest in Sabah and hoped that the consulate would facilitate in bringing in more Chinese tourists to the State.

Musa also told Liang about his recent meeting with the chairman of a tourism travel national corporation in Beijing who would bring one million Chinese tourists to Sabah in the future.

Liang said the target could be easily achieved and therefore, he hoped that Sabah would further step up its tourism-related facilities and services and to ensure better security for tourists.

He added that Kota Kinabalu would soon sign an official agreement to establish sister city ties with Hangzhou.
