According to Dato’ Nolee, tourism is the third economic contributor to Malaysia and it could not be as successful without the full effort of everyone involved in the industry, from government agencies to private sectors and the continued coverage provided by the media.

Dato’ Nolee also assured stakeholders in Perak that the state government will forward all their concerns to the Federal Government regarding the implementation of the new Tourism Tax. “The state has no objection to the tax but it is going to be a challenge to see that it is well implemented and that the revenue collected will be channelled fairly to all levels of the tourism sector in the state,” she added.
