By Heide E. Vinoya KOROR (Palau Horizon, Feb. 16, 2010) - The Palau Visitors Authority (PVA) and the Ngaremlengui State officials are collaborating in developing the Ngermeskang river into Kayak eco-tourism.

[PIR editor’s note: Ngeremlengui, one of Palau's sixteen states, is located in western Babeldaob – Palau’s largest island. While it is the largest of the states in size, it has just 317 residents.]

Melson Miko, PVA Community Support Service manager said the state’s long river has a fish sanctuary and it could attract more tourists if the river was developed for tourism.

Ngaremlengui state was one of the six states visited by the staff of PVA last month.

On February 25- 26, two more states are scheduled to be visited by the PVA. These are the states of Peleliu and Angaur. While Ngiwal and Ngchesar will be visited in March.

The PVA will be visiting all 16 states; this project started in December 2009 and expected to end by March 2010.

"The aim of this state visit is to make the community be informed of what the PVA is doing inside and outside the Republic. We are also coordinating with the state officials regarding historical sites and tourist spots in every state which might need improvements." Miko said in an interview.

Last week the PVA has visited Melekeok and Airai States.
