The agriculture minister stated, “We have to ensure that we keep our country clean like developed countries. Our country is moving towards that phase now. I hope that citizens can be more responsible, not only to look at government and local authorities to take up these responsibilities…If we keep cleaning these places, the aesthetic will become very good which will encourage tourism.”
