Malaysian Tourism Consul in Saudi Arabia Mohd Nasir Kushairi said the good relations between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia also enhanced the confidence of the people in the Middle East country to visit Malaysia, which had various tourist attractions.

 

King Salman headed a delegation of 600 people to Malaysia during a visit to the country from Feb 26 to March 1 this year.

 

Seven Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in various areas, including construction, halal cooperation, aerospace and haj services, with an estimated value of RM9.74 billion, were signed between Malaysia and Saudi Arabian companies in conjunction with King Salman’s visit.

 

Mohd Nasir said his office would further promote Malaysia’s tourism, especially in Sabah and Sarawak, in Saudi Arabia.

 

He also called for cooperation from the state governments to work with the Tourism Malaysia office in Jeddah to promote the tourism products in their respective states.
