“…The origin of Malay in Indonesian is from Riau. So, Riau could be claimed as the “Homeland of Malay,” the minister said.

Minister Arief Yahya further said that Riau as the “Homeland of Malay” is fully supported by some advantages on which geographically, Riau is located nearby neighboring countries that have the same Malay background. He views that the proximity of the geographical location can be developed into a tourism potential for the province known as the natural resources such as oil. (Rezha/Trans by Dhyka)
