Federal Govt Will Continue To Develop Langkawi
LANGKAWI, May 14 (Bernama)
The federal government will continue to develop Langkawi as a world class tourist destination, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcob.
He said towards this end, the federal government was willing to work with all parties including the PAS leadership in Kedah to ensure Langkawi’s tourism industry continued to progress.
Nor Mohamed told this to Bernama after holding a meeting on Langkawi’s development with the Langkawi Development Authority and several federal agencies here Thursday.
He added that the federal government did not foresee any problems in providing development allocations for Langkawi as there were still funds not utilised under the provision for the Northern Corridor Economic Region ECER).
