Calls have been made to review the 2001 Milne Bay Tourism Bureau Act.
Board member of Milne Bay Tourism Bureau, Samuel Auboti, told EMTV News, the review is a must for small people to benefit in the Tourism Sector of the province.
Mr Auboti made this call after the official closing ceremony of the 13th Kundu Kenu Festival in Alotau on Sunday.
He said the current act is outdated and Milne Bay needs policy frameworks that can support locals. He added that traditional villages and cultural practices are the main draw cards of tourists who visit the province.
He said this will be an internal source of revenue; customary landowners will able to earn an income; and other big event s will be supported.
Meanwhile, the 13th Kenu Kendu Festival ended on Sunday with more sailing and dances from around the province.
Despite criticism over financial constraints of hosting the show, show committee members say proper planning will ensure sustainability of the cultural galore.
The last day attracted more tourists to the festival grounds to be part of this national event.
Many participated in the range of activities and bought souvenirs.
