NANYANG WUSHU FESTIVAL
Nanyang Wushu Federation of Sarawak, formerly known as Nanyang Pugilistic Arts & Physical Culture Association inaugurated the first of Wushu competitions and cultural events in 1991. The Festival has received overwhelming support from various organisations/schools, mass media, commercial sectors and members of the public.
Riding on the roaring success of the first festival, the organiser has decided to hold this prestigious event annually. Today, Nanyang Wushu Federation Of Sarawak has successfully organised the festival for seven conservative years. All these years, the Festival has always been an entertainment event which was well-received and appreciated by both local and foreign tourists.
The objectives of the Festival are as follows:
The efforts and encouragement by Ministry of Tourism Sarawak will provided great opportunities for both the public and private sectors to play a vital role in promoting the tourism industry in Malaysia which can contribute significantly towards our country's economic growth. Nanyang Wushu Federation of Sarawak are confident that the fulfilment of this role through the organising of the Nanyang Wushu Festival annually will be realised. Our ultimate goal is to develop our NANYANG WUSHU FESTIVAL into a very well-known and reputable 'Malaysian Tourist Event' throughout the world, to be as famous as the 'Water Festival' of Thailand so that when any foreigner is to mention about WUSHU competition they will talk about our NANYANG WUSHU FESTIVAL in Malaysia.
The Organiser is pleased and honoured that the Sarawak Tourism Board has officially supported the Festival by promoting it through its network and also to include in the calendar of events for the year.
