The Launching Of Belait Tourism Product Packages 2022

9 February, Labi – The launching of Belait Tourism Product Packages was officiated today at the Tropical Biodiversity Centre by Yang Mulia Dayang Hajah Tutiaty binti Haji Abdul Wahab, Permanent Secretary of The Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism. Present at the event were the Deputy Permanent Secretary, Members of the Brunei Tourism Board, Chairman of Kuala Belait and Seria Municipal Board, and Government officials as well as tourism stakeholders.

The launching of Belait Tourism Product Packages was a continuation of the previous launching of Temburong and Brunei-Muara Tourism Product Packages last week.

With the launching of the Belait Tourism Product Packages, brochures were also produced that included sample itineraries that visitors can choose from or design their own tailor-made tours and activities through local travel agencies.

A tree-planting ceremony was also held to mark the launching of the Belait Tourism Product Packages. A total of 5 trees were planted as part of the Forestry Department’s ongoing ex-situ conservation initiative. Among the trees planted was Eusideroxylon zwageri, locally known as Belian Batu or the Borneon Ironwood, a native tree to this country, known for its durability and strength. In recent years, this species has been declining and has been listed in CITES and categorised as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

A familiarization trip was also conducted for Media and Travel Agents, to learn more about tourism products and activities that are available in Belait District, starting with a tour of the Trek at Tropical Biodiversity Centre; visit to Luagan Lalak Forest Recreation Park and Mendaram Besar Long House in Kampong Labi.

The promotion of tourism product packages will continue with the final launching of Tutong Tourism Product Packages this Saturday at the Official Residence of Tutong District Office, Tutong Town.
