Following the schedule of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC) through its agencies, the Visit Malaysia Year 2020 (VMY2020) promotion is still progressing as normal. Saraya Arbi, MOTAC deputy Secretary-General (Culture) said the promotion for VMY2020 had started since January 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand; Berlin, Germany and also in London, United Kingdom.
At the domestic level, Tourism Malaysia had also conducted several promotions such as in Sabah, Sarawak, and peninsula Malaysia, she added.
Saraya said the VMY2020 promotion would be escalated further from Dec 31 through ‘Ambang 2020’.
‘’We will have a skylight show using drones as a launching gimmick during the night of the eve of the new year,’’ she said.
She said at a friendly gathering with handicraft entrepreneurs at the Johor Craft Festival that “In addition, we also hold co-operation with several nations to bring in foreign tourists to Malaysia. This has been implemented via several chartered flights, such as recently, when, for the first time, we brought in tourists from Khazakstan,’’.
In addition, on 1st Jan a large scale reception for tourists together with the state governments and Tourism Malaysia would be held at 22 entry gates to Malaysia.
‘’Next year too, we will implement over 100 major events to ensure that when the tourists arrive, we have products to be viewed. And at the same time, we will have an attractive list such as the locations of the 20 best eating places packages, 20 honeymoon packages, and others on our website,’’ she said.
