KUDAT: The local community has urged the government to revive the Mazu Statue project, which was abandoned more than 20 years ago.
They believe that the ‘Goddess of the Sea’ statue would be a tourism icon and boost the economy of the district.
Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Datuk Christina Liew visited the site of the project on Thursday during her two-day working visit to Kudat.
She visited the site at the request of the local community, who expressed hope that the government would approve the construction of the 'Goddess of the Sea' statue.
Liew said she would bring up the matter with the State Government and the Chief Minister for their consideration and approval.
"It will definitely be a tourism icon and boost the tourism sector in the district, just like the spectacular Tip of Borneo and other hotspots in Sabah.
"Whatever conflicts in the past can be resolved amicably to benefit the people of Kudat and its economy," she said.
During her visit, Liew also toured the Tun Mustapha Museum and Hakka House.
