“These two festivals can help to promote culture tourism where everyone could experience the culture and lifestyle of the indigenous ethnic races,” he said during his visit with Sarawak Minister of Urban Development and Toursim, Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh on Monday. “We should not compete against one another but complement each other.
