Malaysian PM encourages social media users to boost local tourism

Published on : Saturday, May 20, 2017

Malaysian PMThe Malaysian Prime Mi¬¬nister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that social media users can do their part for helping the local tourism industry by sharing photographs of interesting locations around the country in their social media accounts.

He said they could highlight places of interest that are infrequently visited like Pantai Tusan in Miri and Pantai Bachok in Kelantan, among others.

To quote the PM, “There are many locations and interesting places in our country which have not been fully discovered and the photographs of social media users can help boost their popularity and increase the income of the locals through tourism. Many people who comment on these photographs say they thought they were taken in exotic countries like New Zealand or South Korea, and were surprised when they find out it is really in Malaysia.”

Najib said he was also impressed with the beautiful photographs taken by Instagram users that reflect the spirit of Malaysia and its exotic locations.

He said that what is even more amazing is the technology of mobile phones or mobile photography that could now compete with or even beat DSLR cameras.

To quote the PM, “It is not impossible that in the future, mobile phones may replace DSLR cameras as the gadget of choice for professionals. This is … proof that technology is something which evolves rapidly and if we are complacent, we will be left far behind.”
