Friendliness can be hallmark of Sarawak tourism industry

MUKAH: Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud yesterday dwelled at length on friendliness towards visitors.

He urged Sarawakians to keep being friendly, saying it is very important.

“This friendliness could be the hallmark of our tourism industry,” he said.

He was at Kala Dana beach here officiating at the annual Melanau Kaul Festival which attracted more than 10,000 people. Among the visitors were foreign tourists including those from Brunei and Indonesia.

Taib observed that with their natural friendliness Sarawakians had always welcomed visitors, interact with them, satisfy their curiosity and proudly showed them their cultures and traditions.

“As a result, there have been many repeat visitors. I know a Briton who has been visiting the state every year for the past 30 years,” he said.

He said that although they have great differences in culture and traditions, the many ethnic groups have been able to co-exist in peace, unity and harmony.
