KOTA KINABALU: Hungary and Sabah are planning a tie-up in tourism and cultural exchange, besides business dealings.
Hungarian Ambassador to Malaysia Attila Kali said there were many aspects in which his country could work with Sabah.
“From what I have seen here, Sabah is unique in so many ways, just like Hungary. I was introduced to the various cultures of Sabah, its lifestyle and so many other interesting elements,” he said after meeting the Kadazandusun community here yesterday.
Kali, who arrived here on Monday, said it was important to note that Sabah was very much involved in the preservation of its diverse cultures, as was the case with Hungary.
“This is definitely one of the things we can work together in,” he added.
The envoy said he had met State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun, Sabah Tourism Board chairman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai and members of the various chambers of commerce.
