In conjunction with the Visit Malaysia Year 2020 campaign which is nearing to be executed and has been promoted to bring out the best of what Malaysia has to offer to the world in a single, event-packed year. The year 2020 holds a special place in the heart of all Malaysians as it is going to reflect and celebrate all the successes and challenges in transforming a once colonial land, into a thriving, multi-cultural and dynamic country.
With respect to the nearing event, the state tourism industry players must diversify their products and not be dependent on existing attractions. Tourism Malaysia deputy director-general Zulkifly Md Said said all agencies involved should also play their roles in developing more attractive products to woo tourists to Perlis far and wide.
He said during the 2019 Tourism Malaysia Surfcasting Tour fishing competition at Kuala Sungai Baru beach that “For example, Perlis is known for its Harum Manis mango, so industry operators can use the opportunity to offer related products and ensure that the mangoes do not go out of stock,”.
In the Malaysia Surfcasting Tour fishing competition 2019, Aspalila Sadikin, 53, from Simpang Renggam, Johor, was declared a winner after reeling in a 1.55-kilogram sea catfish and took RM70,000 prize money.
The competition which was the ninth edition in the series of the tournament received an overwhelming response with more than 1,600 participants including some from southern Thailand and the final round will be held in Putrajaya Lake on December 29.
