KUALA LUMPUR: The tourism, arts and culture ministry has set a new target of attracting 9.2 million tourists this year.
They are expected to spend RM26.8 billion in the country, said minister Nancy Shukri.
She said the new target was set as the country had almost surpassed its target of attracting 4.5 million visitors, bringing in RM11.1 billion in tourism receipts.
More than 3.21 million arrivals and RM9.35 billion in tourism revenue were recorded during the first seven months of the year.
“This was made possible only with the vigorous initiatives and incentives, including by bringing in international delegates through business events to our country since the reopening of borders and the easing of restrictions for inbound visitors,” Nancy said.
Speaking at the 7th Meet in Malaysia @ Malaysia Business Events Week 2022 here today, Nancy said like other tourism segments, business events had undeniably helped hospitality-related companies.
She said business event visitors spent three times more than the average tourist and they have a large multiplier effect.
“Around 40% of them travel with spouses and 60% of them return as tourists later,” she said.
As such, Nancy said the theme of “Reshaping Business Events” at today’s event was very timely as the ministry was focusing on and continuing to strengthen Malaysia as a business event destination.

@Bitxh_bitxh frogs can quack? lolzzz. Please go back to kindergarten to learn what sound do frogs make.
Firstly, what has this got to do with frequency? Since you post your nonsense on an online forum, you do right that it can be accessed internationally by anyone without any frequency? Secondly, what is AGIGATED? Please define it, or did you meant AGITATED? If it's a spelling error, then don't be so AGITATED by my comments towards you until cannot spell basic words lol.
Btw don't fantasize too much about about being smart in your silly response, Taman Tanjung Rambutan? Which area? What is the connection, please enlighten me? Or did you meant that you wanted to be admitted in Hospital Bahagia, since you think frogs can quack?
Or are you trying to be a funny boy with zero knowledge? If so, you don't have to bring in any Taman's location to show that you are a world-class clown, your comments and kok story is enough to broadcast your imbecility (if you don't know what it means, don't be shy to ask google).
Nevertheless, why never reply me about your fake tin kosong TP mou? your fake followers need to know what fake TP so they can make more losses. Don't bojio them la. But If you don't reply with your fake TP, you will sound and look like a CapitalCunt.... hahaha
@RedzDragon his opinion is invalid due to low level mentality and constant shitposting. But fair enough, if others stick to relevant discussions on AA shares. FYI i am not here to judge anyone's vocabulary and grammar, but i will put them in their place if necessary.
