Assistant Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Joniston Bangkuai encourages rural villagers to maintain the practice of cultivating their land to ensure a stable food supply.
He emphasizes the significance of self-sufficiency for rural communities, reducing reliance on external food sources.
Traditional farming methods have the potential to attract tourists interested in the local farming heritage.
Working on the land fosters strong community bonds, promotes economic development, and stimulates the local economy.
Romokon Village Development and Security Committee chairman, Salinung @ Linus Siniung, believes the call to action will inspire more villagers, especially the youth, to continue the farming legacy.
