Sabah tourismSabah Tourism, Culture and Environment minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun said that if they wish to stand out in the tourism industry, tourism players in Sabah cannot rest on their success.

He said that tourism players should make use of every opportunity to improve their service quality and competitiveness.

The minister said, “Striving to stand out and be the best can help you face future challenges, especially in this ever changing industry that lives on innovation and quality services.”

For assisting tourism players and to keep them improving, Masidi said that the government would also step in and provide various forms of assistance.

He added that the fund is aimed at helping tourism players develop and enhance the quality of their tourism products, particularly lodging such as hotels, resorts and chalets.

Apart from that, a special loan scheme has been set aside to develop facilities like theme parks, museums, galleries, restaurants, convention centres and other projects.

Masidi said, “The government has also set up the Special Tourism Fund for small and medium sized entrepreneurs where they can borrow between RM250,000 and RM30mil.”

He said that the interest rate is about 2.5%, much lower than commercial banks, and the scheme is available for small and medium sized tourism players registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia.
