Sabah State Government Committed to Reserve Its Forest

Sabah's Tourism, Environment and Culture Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said the state government is committed to reserving 55 per cent of state land as forest area.

He said Sabah  has thousands of destinations since it has a huge area that is still covered with greenery and more revenue will flow in for the nature tourism industry if  less we disturb the nature.

Masidi agreed that development needed to take place but it should be balanced to prevent an irreversible and negative impact to the environment.

He told that the ministry will work with non-governmental organisations to realise state goverment's vision to make Sabah a leader in conservation.
