KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah government is receptive to the idea of establishing a Chinese consulate here but the decision is in the hands of the Foreign Ministry, Datuk Seri Musa Aman told reporters here yesterday.  

The Chief Minister said he had forwarded to Wisma Putra officials the Sabah United Chinese Chamber of Commerce's proposal for the consulate.  

He said if the Malaysian and Chinese governments agreed to the proposal, the state authorities would have no problems suggesting a site for the office. 

Last week, chamber chairman Datuk Mohd Sari Nuar Tan called for the setting up of a Chinese consulate in the city due to an increase in activities between Sabah and China, particularly in tourism.
