2017 Feb 2 - Learn From Capsize Tragedy, Act Now – SAPP

Learn from capsize tragedy, ACT NOW

KOTA KINABALU, February 2, 2017: The boat capsize tragedy that claimed the lives of three tourists from China was unfortunate and what is saddening about it was that it occurred during the Chinese New Year celebration.

SAPP secretary general Datuk Richard Yong in a statement yesterday said, “Our hearts go to the victims and their families. The loss of lives and the traumatic experience would have long lasting effects on the tourists and their families”.

He pointed out that the Search and Rescue (SAR) operation by the various agencies including the marine, police and medical staffs have been working tirelessly to locate those still missing and their efforts are indeed highly commendable.

“The question being asked now is whether such incident could have been prevented? Many quarters had expressed their sympathies, views, suggestions and recommendations. Most of which are valid and useful.”

“The government must take all these views and suggestions seriously and act upon it aggressively in order to improve and safeguard Sabah’s tourism industry,” Yong stressed.

According to him, the state government has been promoting tourism and encouraging the people to tap into the career and business opportunities offered by tourism,* which is booming in Sabah.

He is of the opinion that the government must also protect the interest of the local tourist guides!’ to ensure their participation in all the inbound tour activities and it must always give priorities to local tour operators in the handling of tourism products against the fierce competition of foreign tour, companies.

Richard called on the government to improve the facilities and cleanliness in the islands, improve and construct additional jetties to accommodate the increasing number of boats and tourists in Kota Kinabalu and other places like Kota Belud, Kuala Penyu and Semporna among others.

“There must be stringent.: enforcement of laws and safety measures at all times. Act. aggressively lest all the talks would only remain rhetoric. Already many cases of compiling information,. feedback and views but no action mere talk only. We need to see follow through actions.

“While our deepest sympathies and prayers go to the victims and the families we pray that no such untoward incident should ever happen again,” he said. - DE
