By Mei Kuan

Aimed to strengthen camaraderie with the media community in the state, Tourism Perak hosted a breaking fast event at the Tower Regency Hotel Ipoh yesterday (April 23) with the presence of Executive Councillor for Housing, Local Government and Tourism, Dato’ Nolee Ashilin binti Dato’ Mohammed Radzi as the guest of honour. 

Held in strict adherence to the health and safety standard operating procedures, it was attended by media practitioners, tourism industry players and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) of the state.

The affable Nolee greeted everyone personally table by table before the presentation of festive hampers as a token of appreciation.

In her speech, she expressed her gratitude to the media practitioners who help the state government and private sectors in extensively promoting tourism products of Perak. 

“Thank you for your service as the frontliners in the fight against COVID-19. Whenever we speak of frontliners, we usually think of only those working in healthcare, defence and other visible roles. Many of us forget the role of the media as the bridge for the delivery of authentic and vital information from the government to the people. This is a sacrifice of the members of the media who continue to perform their duties daily with commitment and patience during the pandemic,” she stated.

Present were the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Tourism Perak, Dato’ Mohd Kamil bin Dato’ Shafie; CEO of Tourism Perak, Nurmalis binti Musa and General Manager of PORT (People Of Remarkable Talents), Nur Hanim Dato’ Mohamed Khairuddin, among others.
