The new state government is still in the midst of reviewing the previous government's proposal on the Tanjung Aru Eco Development (TAED) project.
Deputy Chief Minister cum Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Christina Liew said that there is no progress yet on the project.
"I believe the government is (still) looking into it. They are reviewing the previous government's proposal. The last that I have heard is that the review is still ongoing. So there is no progress yet that I know of.
"Anyway, as long as we still have the beach, we will continue to make use of the beach and let the public enjoy it," Christina told reporters at a press conference on Wednesday.
"I believe that this (the upcoming events at Tanjung Aru Beach) would be good start. In fact, the Tanjung Aru Beach Festival would be held this weekend," she said.
On a separate note, Christina said that the state government had no qualms about putting up bilingual road signs in Sabah.
Christina reckoned that the measure would be good for the state's tourism industry as dual language signages would give convenience for foreign travellers to understand the signs better.
Recently, the Selangor government had removed dual language road signs at several areas following a decree from the Sultan of Selangor.
