BELAWAI: People here have been urged to venture into the homestay industry or business in a bigger way.
This is because homestays are increasingly gaining popularity and contributing to the economy of the people here.
In this regard, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Urban Development Datuk Len Talif Salleh said he would support anyone, especially those from Belawai who want to venture into the homestay business.
“I also welcome the initiatives and interest of the people in my constituency to explore this field and am ready to help,” said the Kuala Rajang assemblyman.
“This is so that our locals here can see economic growth,” he was quoted as saying by the Sarawak Public Communication Unit (UKAS).
Len Talif made the call when attending the Tourism Awareness Programme at Iftitah Beach Resort here yesterday.
He also said that various development plans will be implemented in Belawai Beach as announced by Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg at a ceremony last month.
A total of 35 residents from Kampung Rajang, Jerijih and Belawai attended the Tourism Awareness Programme which was organised by the State Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture.
