KUCHING: Next year may be Visit Sarawak Year 2013 to commemorate the state’s 50th anniversary of Independence.

Minister of Tourism Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg, who announced this yesterday, said a host of exciting tourism-related activities were in the pipeline to celebrate the auspicious occasion.

“My ministry is prepared to make next year an exciting one, with numerous programmes and activities in conjunction with our 50 years of independence. A few approaches have been drafted, and this include making 2013 a Visit Sarawak Year.

“However, the whole idea is still in the discussion phase because various factors need to be taken into account,” he said after officiating at the ‘2012 Regatta Bandarayaku’ prize giving ceremony at the Kuching Waterfront here.
