Cabinet to get report on conservation of caves in Sabah
The Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry will table in the Cabinet a report on the research and conservation of caves in Sabah.
Minister Datuk Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim said that with it, there would be a tendency to assist in the efforts, and expenditures for cultural arts and heritage would no longer be considered a wastage.
He said that his ministry would prepare the report which contained research and conservation efforts undertaken by the Sabah Museum Department for submission to the federal government so that heritage was viewed as a valuable product of humanity.
Rais said he made the visit to get a closer look at the heritage especially the caves in Sabah so that he would be able to convince the federal government on studies and efforts to conserve historical places with heritage elements.
