LABUAN: Ministry of Federal Territories plans to turn Labuan into a new Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) hub for countries in the East Asian region.

Its minister, Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the matter was being discussed between his ministry and the relevant parties.

“Efforts are being made and discussions ongoing to make Labuan as a LCCT hub for countries in East Asia such as China, Korea, Japan, Kalimantan and also the BIMP-EAGA growth area,” he said.

Tengku Adnan was speaking to reporters after officiating the “Kenduri 1Malaysia” programme in conjunction with the Federal Territory Day celebrations at the Labuan International Lawn Bowls Arena near here on Saturday.

Also present were Labuan MP Datuk Rozman Isli, Senator Datuk Yunus Kurus, Secretary General to the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development Datuk Seri Adnan Mohd. Ikhsan and Labuan Corporation Chief Executive Officer Azhar Ahmad.

Tengku Adnan said his ministry was also in talks with two businessmen to develop 500 acres of land for tourism-related industries.

In addition, he said his ministry had instructed the Labuan Corporation to look into how Boracay was promoted as a famous tourist island in the Philippines.

“Actually Labuan Island is more beautiful and attractive than Boracay if continued efforts were made to develop it. That is why we ask Labuan Corporation to study how Boracay was promoted to become known as an attractive tourist island,” he added.

Tengku Adnan said his ministry was also trying to attract more investors to develop the Labuan tourism sector to make it more competitive and attractive to visitors.

At the ceremony, the minister also gave away prizes to winners of several competitions including “Fly the Federal Territories Flag” and the best “1Malaysia Kenduri Camp”.
