KUALA LUMPUR: The East Coast Eco­nomic Re­gion De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil (ECERDC) has spent RM206 mil­lion to up­grade in­fras­truc­ture and fa­cil­i­ties in Mers­ing and its coastal is­lands to sup­port tourism-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties.

In a state­ment yes­ter­day, its CEO Datuk Seri Je­basingam Is­sace John, said all these ini­tia­tives will en­hance Mers­ing’s pub­lic in­fras­truc­ture and boost its po­si­tion as a re­gional tourism hub.

“Mers­ing and its sur­round­ing is­lands are well­po­si­tioned to be­come a great eco-tourism at­trac­tion, in line with the ‘Rain­for­est to Reef’ con­cept which seam­lessly links all prod­ucts, as­sets and de­vel­op­ment from the En­dauRompin Na­tional Park to the world class beaches, is­lands and reefs off the coast of Mers­ing,” he said. – Ber­nama
