Visit ASEAN@50Tourism Malaysia’s Deputy Director-General (Advertising & Digital), Abdul Khani Daud has assured that the country will play an active role to ensure the success of ‘Visit ASEAN Year 2017′ and ‘Visit ASEAN@50′ campaigns.

 

Among the efforts were cooperation with hotel chains and local travel agents to promote the Visit ASEAN Year logo and travel packages.

 

“The country has also helped promote ASEAN tourism packages via ASEAN website and Tourism Malaysia website,” he told reporters at the Asean National Tourism Organisation (NTO) briefing in Singapore.

 

The event was held in conjunction with the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) 2017, which is held from Jan 16-20, 2017 at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.

 

Abdul Khani said the forum was an important platform for the ministers to come out with more intiatives and strategy to promote ASEAN as a destination.

 

He said Tourism Malaysia would talk to other airlines and at the same time bring tourists to Malaysia and other parts of ASEAN.

 

“So this is important. If more people come to ASEAN they will benefit other ASEAN countries. Those coming to Kuala Lumpur will eventually extend their visits to other parts of ASEAN.

 

“The Europeans, when they plan their holidays to this part of the world, will always say they are going to ASEAN … not to Singapore or Indonesia,” he told Bernama News Channel.
