Ramping Up Tourism Industry in Selangor!
In conjunction with World Tourism Day 2022 which fell on the 27th of September 2022 this year, Tourism Selangor is delighted to be a part of this global initiative with the theme Rethinking Tourism: From Crisis to Transformation. This initiative reflects the resilience of the tourism industry in facing the unprecedented crisis.
The World Tourism Day 2022 calls on the tourism industry to move swiftly in redeveloping and resuming recovery growth during the endemic transition. The state of Selangor has been consistent in assisting the nation’s economic revival in accordance with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals by developing and enforcing policies aimed at boosting sustainable tourism.
The number of domestic tourists visiting Selangor rose, and the state is now ranked first in domestic tourism with a tourist inflow of over 10.2 million recorded. This has demonstrated significant demand for Selangor’s appealing tourism products, and proven the success of the “Pusing Selangor Dulu!” domestic tourism promotional campaign.
In the move towards the endemic phase, I believe that our tourist operators will be more proactive and innovative in putting out various tourism offerings. As a last thought, I hope tourism industry key players will be more resilient while maintaining close relationships with the relevant government agencies and the general public in order to ensure the continued success of our tourism industries. I hope our tourists will continue to have wonderful experiences during their stays!
Eager to travel, Pusing Selangor Dulu!
