PETALING JAYA: MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong exchanged views with representatives of the Malaysia-China Folklore Culture Tourism Association to further develop the tourism industry in Malaysia and China.
Dr Wee said he was delighted to have met with the representatives, especially as China has fully reopened its borders in line with the economic recovery phase.
He also promoted the top tourist spots as well as hidden gem destinations and restaurants in Malaysia which he said had the potential to develop further.
"Now that China has fully reopened its border, I was glad to meet with the representatives of Malaysia-China Folklore Culture Tourism Association to exchange our views on how to further develop the tourism industry in Malaysia and China.
"I shared with them many tourist destinations and popular food items and restaurants in various parts of the country that are worth introducing to our foreign visitors.
"Some of these destinations and restaurants have the potential to develop further as they are still not widely known to tourists," said Dr Wee in a statement on Tuesday (Feb 7).
He said they also discussed the possibilities of having more academic and cultural exchange between the people of the two countries to further improve bilateral ties.
Those who joined Dr Wee at the meeting were Malaysia-China Folklore Culture Tourism Association president Datin Seri Penny Liao, its vice-president Datuk Dr Jacky Chee K.H. and China Southern Airlines Company Limited Kuala Lumpur office general manager Eric Wang.
