We’ve done a lot of work with Tourism Malaysia and judging by the feedback from those involved, the work was well received by TM and the Ministry. However, when it came to implementing our strategies, it all stopped when the new minister took office. I don’t want to get political on this blog but it really does my head in when I read comments like this:
Azalina (Tourism Minister) said issues of environment must also be given importance as it is a vital product in promoting tourism.
“In our advertisements, we portray blue seas and green forest, but when tourists arrive here, they see that our seas are polluted with oil spills or forest cleared.
“In order to attract tourists, we must not show something that looks good in the advertisement and not in reality,”
