Dear YB Chow,

 

REMOVAL OF SWIFT FARMS IN GEORGE TOWN, UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE

 

The deadline for the removal of all swiftlet farms in the UNESCO World Heritage Site is up in 21 days, as previously pledged by the Penang State Government.

 

The Penang Heritage Trust hopes that the Penang State Government can proudly say it has done its job on December 31 2013, and keep to its word of protecting the health of the residents of the George Town World Heritage Site, citizens of Malaysia as well as that of all our international businessmen, tourists and visitors.

 

Penang Heritage Trust looks forward to seeing the heritage houses and skies above George Town clear of swiftlets on 31 December.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Khoo Salma Nasution

President
