“I warn demonstrators and HRDC to avoid making decisions which will affect national economy,”warned Bagus

He then called upon journalists to join hands in promoting tourism by writing more issues which can attract tourists.

This year’s tourism commemoration month will be held under the theme “tourism and jobs-a better future for all.”
