Special channels for tourism

Radio and television will have special tourism channels to disseminate information on destinations and interesting events.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the ministry was having discussions with the relevant ministries on the special channels.

“With these channels, we can promote tourist destinations as well as disseminate information on interesting events for the benefit of the public and tourists,” he said in replying to Senator Datuk Soon Tian Szu in the Dewan Negara yesterday.

Soon had wanted to know whether the government would have its own television channel to promote Malaysia’s tourism products.

In response to a question from Senator Chiw Tiang Chai, on the promotion of Malacca as a tourist destination, Tengku Adnan said Tourism Malaysia had taken various measures, including publishing English and Malay magazines and brochures, depicting various places of interest in the state.
