KOTA KINABALU: Sabah welcomes Doulous Hope, the international floating book fair, which will dock at the South Jetty of Kota Kinabalu Port for two weeks beginning today (Sept 9).
“We are pleased to have you visit us again. There is always a certain excitement each time this international floating book fair comes to our shore, and it is always a welcome event.
“Thank you for choosing Kota Kinabalu again,” Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor said at the welcoming ceremony here today.
The text of his speech was read by Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew.
Doulos Hope’s sister ship, Lohos Hope last visited Sabah in 2011.
Hajiji hoped that visitors who go on board the Doulos Hope will find the selection of over 2,000 book titles including science, medicine, arts, languages, faith, hobbies, cooking, sports, academic texts, amongst others, very rewarding.
The Chief Minister also invited the Doulous Hope crew, comprising nationals from various countries, to explore Sabah during their two-week stint here.
