Banking on tourism initiative

KUANTAN: The state government is targeting a return of RM6bil from the “Revisit Pahang” programme which will run for the first six months of next year.

State tourism and culture committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Sharkar Shamsuddin said about eight million tourists were expected to visit Pahang during the programme.

He said that “Revisit Pahang” was a tourism programme to maintain the momentum of the high number of tourists during the Visit Pahang Year 2017 (TMP2017), namely 11.5 million people as of September.

“We are optimistic that the target of 15 million tourists for TMP2017 can be met by the end of December and because of the school holidays.

“The “Revisit Pahang” programme is also organised to give tourists the opportunity to visit various districts statewide as each district promises a different experience,” he said.

Mohd Sharkar added that the state government also received requests from hotels as well as tourism product producers and homestay entrepreneurs to extend TMP2017 because of the huge presence of tourists. — Bernama
