Move to boost agro-tourism - May 25, 2017

KUANTAN: The Pahang government hopes to boost the agricultural sector in a move to promote agro-tourism.

State Rural Development, Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Committee chairman Datuk Shafik Fauzan Sharif said Pahang had various agricultural areas with the potential to be developed as tourist destinations.

For example, he said Periok, Jerantut, and Bukit Tinggi, Bentong, had aquaculture development centres; Semuji Resort in this district was an agricultural centre; Raub was famous for the Musang King durian and Temerloh was known for ikan patin.

“Agro-tourism has the potential to draw tourists, especially students on study tours and tourists from abroad.

“However, to realise this, we have to develop and maintain facilities such as accommodation and easy access,” he said.

Some of these destinations have hostel facilities but these have to be upgraded if they were to be opened to tourists so as to ensure their security and comfort, he said.

Shafik Fauzan represented State Tourism and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsuddin in launching the Pahang 2017 edition of the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair here.

Also present at the event were Tourism Pahang general manager Datuk Ishak Mokhtar; Tourism and Culture Ministry’s Pahang director Datuk Idros Yahya; Tourism Malaysia Pahang director Mohd Faharuddin Hatmin and Pahang edition MATTA Fair chairman Burhanuddin Ghazali.

Burhanuddin said the 11th edition of the Pahang MATTA Fair targeted sales of RM2mil and five million visitors over three days.

He said 56 booths had been set up to promote domestic and overseas tour packages as well as Visit Pahang Year 2017. — Bernama

32 historical sites in Pahang to be gazetted as National Heritage Sites - April 18, 2017

KUANTAN: The tourism industry in Pahang received a big boost as 32 historical sites throughout the state will soon be gazetted as National Heritage Sites to attract visitors.

Pahang Tourism and Culture committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin said the state government on Oct 5 last year had agreed for the sites to be officially gazetted under the National Heritage Act 2005 (Act 645).

He said the sites, located in 11 districts in the state, include those in former mining town Sungai Lembing, which was once the largest, longest and deepest underground tin mine.

"The Tourism and Culture Ministry, through the Heritage Commissioner, regularly hold discussions with the state government to preserve such places (heritage and historical sites) of interest which will serve as a crowd puller.

"The ministry is conducting studies to highlight various tourism products including in Kampung Budu (Lipis) and Pulau Tawar (Jerantut), which are historical sites linked with legendary Pahang warrior Mat Kilau," he said.

He was replying to a question from Lee Chean Chung(DAP-Semambu) on efforts taken by the state government to promote historical towns in the state, during the state assembly proceedings today.

On Visit Pahang Year 2017, Sharkar said the state is targeting to attract 15 million tourists this year and to generate revenue of about RM10 billion from the tourism.

He said Tourism Pahang has spent RM5 million on promotional activities at all districts in Pahang, including distributing pamphlets and conducting road shows both in Malaysia, and abroad.

Meanwhile, Felda settlers at Felda Kechau 6, Lipis, can enjoy better water supply by the end ofnext month when upgrading works at the Felda Kechau 6 water treatment plant is completed.

Replying to a question from Datuk Mustapa Long (BN-Padang Tengku), State Felda Affairs committee chairman Datuk Abu Bakar Harun said the upgrading works involved changing the raw water pump, booster transformer and panel starter.

"Once works are completed, the treatment plant will perform smoothly and help increase water quality to the people in the vicinity," he said.

He added that Felda is carrying out water supply system upgrading works in Pahang at an estimated cost of RM452 million which will help overcome water disruption problems in Felda settlements.
