The Borneo Post - - HOME -

BAU: The Serembu Cul­tural and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre here cost­ing RM200,000 will be a new tourism prod­uct for Bau district, said Serembu as­sem­bly­man Miro Simuh.

The project built un­der the Ru­ral Trans­for­ma­tion Pro­gramme (RTP) is ex­pected to be com­pleted in March next year.

“The de­vel­op­ment of the cen­tre will also of­fer lo­cals a chance to ven­ture into and ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in the tourism in­dus­try thereby pro­vid­ing them with an­other eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity,” he said when met af­ter the hand­ing over of the project doc­u­ment yes­ter­day.

“At the same time, we are also plan­ning to set up Mount Serembu Eco Park as one of the at­trac­tions to tap the unique­ness of the area. This ap­proach, I be­lieve, will make the area more at­trac­tive to lo­cal as well as in­ter­na­tional tourists,” he added.

Miro also said that such project was im­ple­mented so that more com­mu­ni­ties in the area would ben­e­fit from the tourism sec­tor in Serembu.

He said he would con­tinue to en­sure the tourism sec­tor in his con­stituency grow in tan­dem with cur­rent needs and trends.

“In view of this, I urge all par­ties to jointly pre­serve nat­u­ral tourism prod­ucts such as rivers, hills, moun­tains and forests lo­cated in Serembu to at­tract more tourists to come here,” he said.
