‘LAK MOLUB’: NO SPITTING IN PALAU

MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, Mar. 30) - The people of Palau are being asked not to spit in public places.

The move is part of Palau's bid to attract more tourists.

The chairman of the Palau Visitors Authority, Jackson Henry, says authorities are going to intensify the "Lak Molub" campaign, which means "Don't Spit".

He says 100 posters will be erected at public places around the island-nation.

Mr Henry says authorities are not opposed to the cultural practice of chewing betel nut, but want chewers to be more responsible.

He says Palauans must be sensitive to the concerns of tourists if they want them to return.
