Malaysia is Well On Track to Surpass International Tourist Arrival Target
According to Tourism Malaysia Director-General Datuk Dr. Ammar Abdul Ghapar, Malaysia is predicted to welcome up to 18 million visitors by the end of 2023. In spite of the fact that Malaysia initially targeted 16.1 million international tourist arrivals for this year, the country has already achieved 28% of that figure after welcoming 4.5 million tourists in the first quarter alone. “We are very optimistic that we can achieve our target of 18 million tourist arrivals this year,” said Datuk Dr. Ammar Abdul Ghapar. He added that the government is committed to offer more incentives to chartered flight operators in an effort to encourage more tourists to visit Malaysia.
