KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Tourism Board (STB) has been nominated for the first time to sit on the Pacific Asia Travel Association (Pata) board for a two-year term until 2021.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Christina Liew said STB was proud to accept the nomination.

"STB general manager Noredah Othman has been appointed as a Pata board member, and she will receive the instrument of appointment at the board's meeting in Kazakhstan in September this year," she said in a statement issued here on Monday (July 22).

Liew, who is also state Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, said STB would contribute towards positioning Pata as a dynamic membership association for Asia Pacific travel and tourism.

Founded in 1951, Pata is a not-for-profit association that is internationally recognised for acting as a catalyst for responsible development of travel and tourism to, from and within the Asia Pacific region.

One of the functions of the Pata board is to determine high-level external and industry policies of Pata, as well as to provide guidance to the Pata executive board on such issues.
