KUCHING, Nov 5 – The Sarawak Legislative Assembly today approved the Sarawak Heritage Bill 2019, which is aimed at enabling the state to protect, preserve, conserve and manage its heritage assets more efficiently.

The bill, presented by Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, was passed after the third reading.

“Under the bill, there are four new parts introduced and these parts are Administration, Duties and Responsibilities of the Director, Underwater Heritage and Enforcement,” he said during his second reading of the bill today.

Abdul Karim, who is also the Minister of Youth and Sports, said conservation and management of heritage are spelt out and made clear in the bill.

“The Sarawak Museum Department will be able to make proper consideration on how to deal with heritage conservation matters within the framework of the new ordinance.

“We must have a workable and updated heritage management system not only for protection but also to create awareness and instil care for our heritage.

“Sarawak is not only rich in natural resources but also rich in history and culture,” he said, adding that heritage can be equated to its identity and pride.
