BCF organisers commended for showcasing Sarawak

SIBU: Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas has commended organisers of the Borneo Cultural Festival (BCF) in showcasing Sarawak as a cultural melting pot to attract tourists.

Uggah, who is also Minister of Modernisation of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development said that BCF is an event for the locals and the tourists to witness Sarawak as the cultural melting pot of Malaysia through games and events showcasing various cultural regalia and local food.

“Through this effort, the colourful cultures will not perish or remain submerged in the midst of the globalisation craze.

“The increasing number of visitors to the BCF is a clear sign that the festival has realised its objectives,” he said at the closing of Borneo Dayak Cultural Festival (BDCF) held in conjunction with the BCF here on Wednesday.

His text of speech was read by a political secretary to the chief minister Romeo Christopher Tegong.

“From its social viewpoint, BCF is also a great initiative to close the racial gap,” he said.

At the function, Romeo announced a minor rural projects (MRP) grant of RM30,000 for BDCF from Uggah. Among those present were BDCF organising chairman Paulus Dandee Banyang and Sibu Rural District Council deputy chairman Robert Lau.
