Efficient transport system needed to promote tourism sector

Brunei: AN efficient transportation network is needed to promote the country’s tourism industry, the Minister of Communications said in a recent interview.

Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Hj Mustappa Hj Sirat cited the Temburong district — which is being marketed as an ecotourism site. He said Temburong needs a more reliable public transport system to attract more tourists.

“We are talking to boat operators and trying to convince them on the need to have a reliable transport system,” he said.

YB Dato Hj Mustappa said boat operators can’t simply wait for the boats to be filled up and only then would they depart for Temburong.

“There has to be a (regular) schedule for departure and arrival of boat services. I think that’s important,” he said.

YB Dato Hj Mustappa said the ongoing construction of the Temburong Bridge will speed up travelling time from the mainland to Temburong. He hoped more hotels and shopping centres will be constructed in Temburong to accomodate tourists.

He said stakeholders need to work together to expand the tourism industry.

“Tourism sector is an important sector for Brunei. There has to be a coordinated effort among all the agencies concerned (with tourism). The MPRT (Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism) is driving this effort and they are working in coordination with Ministry of Communications and travel agents in order to promote Brunei,” he said.–Ak Md Khairuddin Pg Harun

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
