During the official launch of the fest on March 11, Tourism Malaysia took the opportunity to promote Perak’s latest packages that focused on Perak’s Agro sectors. State exco for tourism, culture, arts, communications and multimedia, Dato’ Nolee Ashilin Dato Mohammed Radzi was present to officiate the affair.

“The Perak Agro Tourism package is one of the our efforts to invite more visitors, both domestic and international to visit Perak,” said Nolee in her speech.
