Visit Malaysia Year 2007

Visit Malaysia Year 2007 came to almost a close now, with 2007 almost ends.

What is the outcome of VMY2007? The target set was 20.1 Million visitors for 2007, and with 1 more week to go, Malaysia has attracted a total of 20.7 Million visitors. Looks like we are going to end 2007 with 21 Million visitors.

That is a huge number of tourists. Essentially, for every 1 Malaysian, we attracted 0.8 foreign tourists who came to visit Malaysia, be it on a day trip, or a lengthy month-long vacation.

Coincidentally, as I was watching Channel News Asia here in Singapore, Singapore has just received its 10th Million visitor of the year. So, now, Singapore has also crossed their milestone of 10 Million tourists a year, in a tiny island.

Are we doing better? Would both the countries be able to synergize effort to bring more tourists?

Lets hope we are able to do so!

To all foreign tourists, we welcome you with open arms - Selamat Datang!
