Sarawak to preserve historical buildings, forts and caves

KUCHING: Sarawak will improve and preserve the infrastructure of its historical buildings, forts and caves to sustain their tourism value, said Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud.

"We will also preserve the many flora and fauna in the state," he said at the opening of the five-day Pacific Travel Association annual meeting beginning April 23 at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching.

Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit said Sarawak's ecotourism potential was not fully discovered.

He said, a strategy to exploit the ecotourism potential would be mapped out soon to boost the state's tourism industry.-- Bernama
