KOTA KINABALU: Sabah-China Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) President Datuk Frankie Liew said he hoped to promote Sabah to not only leaders of relevant China authorities, but also participants from the region at the ongoing 17th Asean Overseas Chinese Entrepreneurs Conference in Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province.
He said this so that more visitors and investors would come to Sabah looking for opportunities. More than 600 overseas Chinese business people from 53 countries and regions are attending the event from June 10-15.
The first Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) conference of overseas Chinese associations and other exchanging activities will be concurrently held.
Liew said both Sabah and Yunnan shared many similarities. “Both are rich in natural resources, fertile soil, superior geographical locations that make both areas important for the BRI in Asean.
Projects valued at 6 billion yuan (US868 million) are expected to be signed during the event, together with a memorandum on cooperation between the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese and the Yunnan provincial government.
