Sabah can be China’s valuable OBOR partner: China Consul General

10th August, 2018

By MICHAEL TEH

KOTA KINABALU: With its abundant natural resources and good infrastructure and transportation, Sabah has a great potential to become a valuable partner to China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ (OBOR) initiative.

Acknowledging this was Liang Caide, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Kota Kinabalu while speaking at the 42nd Anniversary Celebration cum 22nd Installation Ceremony of the Executive Committee, Culture & Education Bureau, Youth Committee and Women Committee of The United Sabah Chinese Communities Association of Kota Kinabalu (USCCAKK), at the banquet hall of Wisma Hakka, in Tanjung Lipat here, on Wednesday.

He was also convinced that the official visit of prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to China, next week, would further elevate the long-established Sino-Malaysia bilateral ties to a higher level, besides boosting bilateral trade between China and Sabah.

“I believe, under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal and the strong support of the present state government of Sabah and the joint efforts of the USCCAKK, there’s a bright future for Sabah to establish closer rapport with various provinces and cities in China.

“At the same time, more China tourists will be visiting Sabah and more China enterprises too will be investing in Sabah, thus pushing the bilateral ties between China and Sabah to a new platform,” said Liang.

He also cited a popular Chinese adage to describe the inseparable ancestral and emotional bond between the Chinese people of China and Malaysia.

He acknowledged that since its inception 42 years ago, and despite having gone through thick and thin, USCCAKK and its 15 affiliated members had never neglected to build a harmonious society in Sabah, promoting economic development, continuing to support construction in their ancestral village, and fortifying the bilateral ties between China and Malaysia.

He also reckoned that such a close bilateral ties and cooperation between China and Sabah would blossom with USCCAKK continuing to play a significant role under Wong’s leadership.
