Lantern Festival included in T'ganu's tourism calendar

The Lantern Festival will be included in the state's tourism calendar from next year, said Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman.

He said program would be carried out to promote the event next year in preparation for the launch of the 2017 Visit Terengganu Year.

"This reflects the racial unity that exists in Terengganu because although the Chinese are a minority group in the state, their celebration is also shared by others," he told reporters after opening the Dungun Lantern Festival at Sura Gate here last night.

Also present were Dungun District Officer Datuk Mat Yassin Awang and Terengganu Gerakan adviser Datuk Chang Jong Yu.

The Lantern Festival was organised by the Sura Gate Rukun Tetangga (neighbourhood watch) with the cooperation of Dungun Gerakan branch.

Meanwhile, Chang, in his speech, said the Lantern Festival organised in Dungun was well-received by the local community.

This reflects the racial harmony that has long existed and which will continue to be preserved for future generation, he added.
