Kaul Fest a viable platform for Mukah folk to generate income

MUKAH: The Kaul Festival serves as a platform for the local community to seek opportunities for improving their economic standing, by way of introducing and promoting their products to domestic and foreign visitors.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem noted that the tourism sector remained a vital contributor to the state’s economic growth.

“Therefore, the local community should seize the opportunity during Kaul Festival towards generating lucrative income for themselves, as well as drawing more crowds to the event.

“The festival is one that brings people of various races together and at the same time, it promotes Sarawak – particularly Mukah – to the world,” he said when officiating at this year’s Kaul Festival here yesterday.

Adenan pointed out that tolerance and respect for one another had made it possible for the local folk to come together for the festival.
