A new domestic tourism campaign known as 'Selera Bruneiku' is hoped to contribute to the country's economic growth by encouraging locals and residents to spend locally. Such a campaign will also help open up more business opportunities for our local entrepreneurs in the fields of agriculture, livestock and fisheries industries, as there would be higher demand for meat products, poultry, fish seafood, vegetable and the likes in local restaurants. Speaking at the launching of 'Selera Bruneiku', Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Ali bin Apong, Minister of Primary Resources and Tourism said that in preparation for the campaign, the Tourism Development Department has held joint consultations with hotels, local travel agents, tourism service providers, village consultative council and relevant government agencies in making the Domestic Tourism packages a success.
The 'Selera Bruneiku' campaign focuses on attracting locals and residents on a domestic food journey whilst experiencing local product offerings and activities to stimulate the domestic tourism growth. To date, 12 tourism agencies, ten hotels and twenty-six tourism service providers are offering domestic tourism packages.
