Meanwhile, a civil servant, Gingerila, said the celebration will demonstrate the concept of the Malaysian Family given the strong spirit of unity that exists between the multi-racial and multi-religious communities in Kapit.

“This celebration will also promote Kapit from various aspects such as tourism as well as introduce local products to the public, thus increasing the economic return to the people here.

“Overall, the people of Kapit are very happy and really welcome the arrival of those outside Kapit to join in and enliven the celebration on June 5 to 6,” she said.

As for youths, Mohd Faizal Junaidi and Zareeq Afzan Abu said the celebration would make Kapit a focal point for tourists not only from within Sarawak but also from within Malaysia.

On another note, they hope that the government will continue to pay more attention to the empowerment of youths in Kapit through  the development of educational infrastructure, business centres and so forth.
