SERIAN: Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort Sdn Bhd here will be a new attraction for Austrian tourists, according to the ambassador of Austria to Malaysia Dr Michael Posti.
Dr Posti said the resort will provide a unique holiday experience on its own to nature lovers once it is operational.
“This is my second time visiting here and I am very pleased with its current state of development after a year.
“This place has great potential due to its comprehensive development that includes green technology,” he said to reporters after visiting the Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort at Batu 33, Kuching-Serian Road yesterday.
According to Dr Posti, in addition to introducing sustainable development by growing vegetables through agroponic systems, the presence of empurau fish makes the farm more appealing.
“I think the empurau firsh farm would not only be appealing to the people of Sarawak but to the whole world as well.
“This is a real asset and I look forward to returning to Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort,” he explained.
He also said his agency would take on the role of introducing Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort to Austrians when they want to visit Sarawak.
“In the meantime, I propose Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort to be equipped with a cable car facility as it is surrounded by mountains, and to become one of the tourist attractions here.
“We are ready to assist in engineering to materialise the facilities mentioned,” he said.
Also present was the owner of Borneo Empurau Farm and Resort Sdn Bhd Datuk Yong Fook Heng.
