Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said that the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture (MOTAC) is trying to promote potential places in each state through the narration of its history.

MOTAC also wanted traditional food and clothing to be illustrated in every way beyond naming places to support since each thing has a fascinating story to speak about.

“Every place, food and traditional costumes presented (to be promoted) has an interesting story,” she said after visiting Ranee Brooke Museum in the Old Kuching Court House Building.

She used the museum as an example, telling the story of the first queen in Sarawak during Rajah Brooke 's reign.

“I will try to find time to go to the other places of interest around the country to see for myself, at the same time we (the ministry) will help in terms of improving places with tourism potential,” she said.

MOTAC also said that MOTAC wanted local people in Malaysia to explore places that can be shared through social media to help promote Malaysia as a safe tourist destination in this new normal.

“By adopting this new normal, we want people to feel safe, it also gives people the confidence not to be afraid to go and visit places,” she said.
