KUALA LUMPUR,  May 14 (Bernama) -- Some of 20,000 visitors are targeted to attend the Perak Agrotourism Carnival 2024 (PAC 2024) at Tasik Raban Resort, Lenggong over three days starting May 17.

Lenggong MP, Datuk Seri Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah who is also the Deputy Home Minister said the programme in conjunction with Visit Perak Year 2024 aims to introduce the agro-tourism industry especially in Lenggong as a World Heritage Site.

"We are confident that it can promote tourism products in Lenggong such as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012 as well as a National Geopark location in 2021 and in 2026 it is expected to become a Lenggong UNESCO Global Geopark (UGGp) after Langkawi and Kinabalu.

"So far, we have more than 150 industry players in accommodation, food and event sectors," he said when appearing as a guest in an exclusive interview programme on Bernama Radio regarding the Perak Agrotourism Carnival 2024 today.

Shamsul Anuar also expects the presence of visitors to the programme organised by the Perak State Agricultural Development Corporation (Perak SADC) and the Perak state government from foreign countries because there are various activities that will be carried out including Rahmah Sales and a 70 per cent discount for agrotourism packages.

"Visitors to PAC 2024 also have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of interesting events held such as hot air balloon rides, recreation with various extreme sports and recreational activities such as water sports and camping activities.

"They can attend the ceramah perdana forum, witness extreme recreational sports, appearances by popular artists and food festivals," he said.
