Ministry strives to achieve 36 mil tourist arrivals by 2020

Teamwork among employees of the Tourism Ministry should be enhanced in an effort to turn it into an effective organisation and achieve the Key Performance Indicators (KPI), said its minister, Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen.

She said this was in line with the ministry's objective of achieving the target of 36 million tourist arrivals with a turnover of RM168 billion by 2020.

"The Ramadan Bazaar in the fasting month of Ramadan is yet another Malaysia's tourism products as well as a culture of togetherness among the people.

"The promotion of the bazaar will be intensified by the ministry as no other country has such a wide array of delicious fare sold at numerous places nationwide," she said when attending the breaking of fast at the Putra World Trade Centre here Wednesday.

For the record, Malaysia received RM1 billion a week in tourism revenue last year.

Ng said the breaking of fast enhanced the spirit of togetherness and cooperation among fellow employees.
