The Penang Government will be getting shopping complex managements to jointly promote Penang as a regional shopping paradise.
State Tourism Committee chairman Teng Chang Yeow said this would enhance the appeal of each complex.
“We want to see a healthy competition so that there is no wastage of resources in trying to promote every complex.
“By coming together, they can do a bigger promotion outside of Penang because we now have to look beyond our borders and not just at Penang's population of only 1.4 million,” he told newsmen after launching the Year End Sale (YES) 2006 and lighting the Christmas tree at Island Plaza recently.
Teng hoped the complex managements would exchange ideas on how best to work out the group promotion and what kind of assistance they needed from the state.
On efforts to revitalise Komtar, Teng said property consultant Henry Butcher was engaged by the state last month to work out a business plan for Komtar and would submit it soon.
