KUALA LUMPUR: Citrawarna Malaysia (Colours of Malaysia), which begins this Saturday and ends on June 27, will enable foreigners to see for themselves that the country is safe from the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and free from terrorism threats. 

Culture, Arts and Tourism Minister Datuk Paduka Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir said the celebrations would prove that daily life goes on as usual without fear. 

“Citrawarna Malaysia is held to attract tourists to visit Malaysia and spur domestic tourism,” Abdul Kadir told reporters here yesterday.  

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalullail will grace the event, the highlights of which include a parade, at 8.30pm at Dataran Merdeka. 

The closing ceremony, to be held in Taman Darul Aman in Jitra, Kedah, on June 27, will be attended by the Kedah Sultan. – Bernama
