Heritage Conservation and Tourism - Not the Same Thing

Heritage Conservation and Tourism - Not the Same Thing

Budget 2021 that was tabled recently included an item rarely seen - allocation amounting to RM10 Million for the preservation of our heritage buildings, such as the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Carcosa Seri Negara. As mentioned by our resident heritage conservation expert, Elizabeth Cardosa, it’s a good start, but is the amount enough, considering how expensive maintenance and preservation work can be? But the bigger question is, should we look at our heritage assets as part of the tourism sector? Or should they be seen and appreciated independently?
