KUALA TERENGGANU: Dont commit any mistakes that could jeopardise the tourism industry in Terengganu.
That was the advice of state Industrial Development and Tourism committee deputy chairman Datuk Mohd Nasir Ibrahim Fikri to helmsmen in the state.
Some quarters outside the country might turn it into an issue to drive tourists away from Terengganu or Malaysia.
It could be a business strategy to take advantage of our weaknesses, he said at the closing of a seminar on courtesy for helmsmen in Kuala Terengganu on Thursday.
Seventy-seven helmsmen including those plying boats to resort islands attended the half-day event.
Citing an example, Mohd Nasir said there would be dire consequences to the tourism industry if a boat ferrying tourists were to capsize and there were no life jackets on board.
We cannot afford to make such mistakes.
Mohd Nasir said the seminar was necessary to prepare frontliners in the tourism industry for Visit Terengganu Year 2008.
He said seminars would also be held for different groups including nature and city guides.
Three speakers gave a talk at the seminar, organised by the Terengganu Tourism Action Council.
They are Terengganu Tourism Action Council general manager Mohd Nawawi Mohd Arshad who spoke on the tourism industry in Terengganu.
