At the same time, the company has also entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Singapore Cruise Centre Pte Ltd to manage the terminal.
"The cruise industry is one of the fastest growing segments of tourism and there is no doubt that this upcoming cruise terminal will increase tourist arrivals in Impression City Melaka, which in turn, will lead to greater spending by tourists," chief executive officer Datuk Wira Boo Kuang loon said in a statement today.
