Published on : Monday, July 15, 2019

Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (Motac) Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi explained that his ministry is pretty sure of attaining its target of 30 million tourist arrivals by 2020, contributing around RM100 billion in revenue with the balance to be contributed by domestic tourism.

 

“Kelantan is among the states expected to attract a higher number of foreign tourists to Malaysia. A total of 5.5 million tourists are expected to visit Kelantan this year.”

 

“Tourist arrivals to the state will increase further next year and this will help boost the number of tourists coming to Malaysia,” he said.

 

He was talking with the reporters during closing ceremony of the Kelantan Folk Arts Festival (FKRK) 2019 here yesterday.

 

Culture and Arts Department (JKKN) director-general Tan Sri Norliza Rofli, Kelantan Culture, Tourism and Heritage Committee chairman Datuk Md Anizam Abd Rahman and Narathiwat deputy governor Patimoh Sadiyamon were also present in the ceremony.

 

The FKRK introduced in 2017 is one of nine cultural programs listed in the cultural tourism sector calendar in nine states to highlight the unique local cultures as tourism products. — Bernama
