target tahun 2008 = 25.5 Million tourists

Ministry to target 'high quality' tourists

By LOH FOON FONG

PETALING JAYA: The Tourism Ministry will be targeting more "high quality" tourists this year in an effort to boost the country's tourism industry, said its deputy minister Donald Lim.

The Ministry hopes to target these tourists who spend RM4,000 to RM5,000 and who do not create problems to the country, he said.

To increase the number of tourists in this category, the ministry hopes to target more tourists from the Middle East, eastern China, Korea and Japan, he said.

Quality tourists also include the 5% of tourists who are here for meetings and it is hoped that the percentage will increase to 8% this year, said Lim after launching the Chinese Calligraphy and Painting Exhibition by famous artists from China here.

The Ministry hopes to increase tourists from other parts of Asia and the world from 15% in each category to 20% and reduce tourists from South-East Asia from 70% to 60%, he said.

"We are targeting 25.5 million tourists for this year and hope to bring in foreign revenue of RM50bil," he said.

It is also hoped that the average stay will increase to eight nights from last year's 6.7 nights, he said.

By 2010, the ministry hopes to achieve half of the tourists from SEA and the rest from other parts of the world, he said.

buddy I suggest you do some homework first and figure out where this was instigated. Seems it's okay for Indonesians to come up with ridiculous measures to tarnish it's neighbour but we can't say a word or express how we feel of the ill natured antics by our neighbour? Let me ask you my friend...who has a show that humourised sensitive issues and poke fun at Malaysia? let me remind you...'republik mimpi'..the show is purely of bad taste (distorting facts) and shows disrespect to Malaysia..are we supposed to be immuned from all kinds of issues raised by your country? Bout origins of cultural performances...police brutality etc etc...
So please...don't play angelic my friend. I truly find you a creative and very resourceful contibutor to this forum and we truly appreciate that but try to understand our frustrations. The 'drama' neve ends from across the straits...as much as we'd love to ignore sometimes it does irks us a bit and nudging the nerves. Republik mimpi is a TV show..therefore has a lot of impact on the audience, sadly the facts are twisted, doctored and played into a humour at our cost...your neighbour, Malaysia and NOT MALINGSIA...check out YOUTUBE and you find the attitude of your fellow countryman were VERY hostile towards Malaysia with such words as 'anjing', 'kafir'...and zionist! and Republik Mimpi has a lot to do with it...

More Brits Making Sarawak Second Home

KUCHING, Jan 7 (Bernama) -- More people from Britain are making Sarawak their second home under the "Malaysia: My Second Home" (MM2H) programme since it was introduced in 2002.

Sarawak Immigration director Datuk Robert Lian said his department had approved 41 applications for social visit passes from Britons under the MM2H programme.

"Last year alone, 17 Britons applied to participate in the programme," he told a press conference here today.

He said until last year, the department had issued 105 social visit passes to MM2H participants, including 45 issued last year.

"Taiwanese formed the second largest number of MM2H applicants, with 18, followed by Indonesians, with 13."

Lian also said that 4.1 tourists visited Sarawak last year with Bruneians comprising the largest number, coming through Sungai Tujuh in Miri, Tedungan and Pandauan in Limbang and Mangkalap in Lawas.

Tedungan is the busiest entry point as the small town, located in northern Sarawak, is nearest to the Brunei district of Temburong.

"Sarawak, especially Miri and Limbang, are popular with shoppers from Brunei as there are many shopping complexes with a wide variety of quality products," said Lian.

"Brunei's stronger currency than the ringgit is another factor that draws Bruneians to spend their money on accommodation and food in Sarawak."

Lian said Indonesians formed the second largest number of visitors to Sarawak, with many looking for job opportunities or visiting their relatives, and Indonesian parents visiting their children studying at the higher learning institutions.

He said to cater to the increasing number of visitor arrivals, the department would build two Immigration complexes at Lubok Antu in Sri Aman and Biawak in Lundu, both at the Sarawak-Indonesian border, under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

He added that the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complexes near Tedungan in Limbang and at Mangkalap in Lawas were expected to be ready this year, while the construction of the CIQ complex in Sungai Tujuh, 38km from Miri, would begin this month and should be completed in two years' time.

Tourism Ministry ups arrivals target from 21.5m to 22.5m
By Kathleen Tan, 11 Jan 2008 7:16 PM
THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: The Tourism Ministry has proposed to the Cabinet committee on tourism to raise this year’s target for tourist arrivals to 22.5 million, based on hotel occupancy rates last year.

Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Donald Lim said on Jan 11 the targeted tourism revenue for 2008 is RM50 billion compared to last year’s target of RM47 billion. The government estimated 21 million tourist arrivals for last year.

He said the ministry hopes to attract more tourists with higher spending power including those from the Middle East who “spend three to four times more than the average tourist, which is around RM2,300 per person".

Speaking to reporters after the launch of Sunway Pyramid’s “Blossoming of Spring” Chinese New Year celebrations, Lim said the ministry was targeting golfers from Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and eastern China. There are 204 golf courses in Malaysia

While shopping malls would still be targeting Middle Eastern tourists, the ministry was also keen to attract tourists from eastern China. The ministry had proposed to Treasury to make more items duty free.

On real estate tourism, he said the government was considering giving permanent resident status to high-worth individuals with expertise in specialised areas where Malaysia is lacking. “However, these are still in the initial stages,” he said.

Lim said the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme was progressing well and would be targeting participants mainly from the UK, Japan and South Korea, who were the bulk of the 1,900 applications approved last year. This year, MM2H hopes to attract 3,000 people.

He said major investment opportunities lie in the island resorts, which were frequented by foreigners.

“Even for this coming Chinese New Year, the three-star to five-star hotel occupancy is insufficient due to the influx of Chinese and Hong Kong tourists. Hotels around KL are so fully booked that Chinese tourists have to stay in Shah Alam hotels,” Lim said.

Tourism players warned over hiring foreigners


By ELIZABETH LOOI & CHOONG MEK ZHIN

KUALA LUMPUR: Stern action will be taken against tourism industry players such as hotels and restaurants if they do not hire locals to serve customers.

“We will blacklist them, we will not grade them and we will ask the authorities not to renew their licences.

“The Cabinet has agreed that we should not have foreign workers as waiters or bellboys,” said Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.

Tengku Adnan, who was at the launching of T-Station, a tourism information electronic booth, at Menara Kuala Lumpur on Monday, added that the secretary-general would send reminder letters to those concerned.

He said he had written to Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad on replacing foreign workers with locals as frontliners at international airports.

“I know the industry players prefer to hire foreign workers so that they do not have to pay EPF (Employees Provident Fund).

“I’ve told them to hire locals but they must increase the salary scale,” he added.

Stern Action Against Employers Hiring Foreigners As Frontliners


KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- Stern action awaits employers in the services sector, including airports and hotels, should they fail to abide by the government's decision that only locals should serve as frontliners.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the action to be taken against them included disallowing them to bid for new government projects and to renew their licences, blacklisting them, and with regards to hotels, the ministry would cease grading them.

"We need to be firm, not just talk but no action, while the number of migrant workers continues to rise," he told reporters after launching the Travellers Station, a multi-service tourist information booth, at Menara Kuala Lumpur, here today.

The government recently barred foreign workers from serving customers directly at all airports, including the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, (KLIA) so as to allow more locals to be frontliners.

Tengku Adnan said the industry players should to be more patriotic and provide more jobs to Malaysians rather then employ foreign workers.

He said the government would issue a letter to Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad to ensure that its outsourcing companies would scout for local workers to replace foreign workers at the nation's entry gates.
