To promote the state more effectively and thereby to increase local traders' incomes, state authorities are encouraging domestic investors to assist the development of various Melaka products.
Tourism, Heritage and Culture Committee chairman Datuk Muhamad Jailani Khamis said it would encourage tourists to choose and own various products of tourism.
"There will be products of original Melaka characteristics, including in the galleries, which can be used for tourists to buy souvenirs in replicas and key chains in various shapes. These products will be certified by authentication.
"So, I welcome those who wish to invest in the tourist industry in Melaka to either have direct meetings with the Chief Minister or apply to the state’s tourism, heritage, and cultural office,” he said.
Muhamad Jailani said 68% of the state's tourism sector has so far recovered and preparations have been made to enhance programming of tourism, such as concerts and musical performance, to draw more tourists to the state.
"With the on-going restrictions to curb the COVID-19 pandemic, we must, however, wait for the permission or the Federal Government's announcement," he said.
