MPT president Shahrom Abdul Malik welcomed guest-of-honour Datuk Hamidah Osman who is the senior state executive councillor in charge of the tourism portfolio.

Hamidah said she appreciated MPT’s efforts and commitment in organising the festival.
She also said MPT was given RM150,000 by the state government as an incentive to organise the festival here.
“From the Visit Perak programme, we were inspired to come up with the idea to provide tourists with the Perak Tourism Passport.
“Not only can the tourists choose products and guides, they can also explore and visit places which offer discounts and win lucky draws.
“This would allow the tourists to have a good time in Perak besides enjoying the various benefits.”
