MATTA’s Terengganu Chapter Office was launched on 19 July 2018 by the State Committee Chairman for Tourism, Culture and Information Technology YB Ustaz Ariffin Deraman together with President of MATTA Datuk Tan Kok Liang, MATTA Terengganu Chapter Chairman Roslan Bin Idris and members of MATTA Exco 2017/2019.
The Terengganu state government is expecting up to 5 million tourists arrivals for 2018 and Ustaz Ariffin admitted at the launch that the target is realistic as the state is targeting quality tourists.
At the launch at Dataran Panji Curve Business Park, Datuk Tan singled out Terengganu’s renowned islands such as Redang, Perhentian, Lang Tengah, Kapas as the main
tourists draws not forgettingthe largest man made lake in Southeast Asia of the Kenyir Lake. However he pointed out that due to the monsoon occurring from November to February, the islands are closed for business.
To ensure Terengganu enjoys a full year of activities, MATTA will assist the state in drawing up packages that can continue attracting tourists to the rest of the equally appealing destinations in Terengganu. MATTA will also leverage on its aggressive promotion in places like China, the Middle East, Berlin, London and neighbouring Asean countries to influence more tourists to come visit Terengganu.
“We wish to thank MATTA members for their participation, support and success of the launch of MATTA Terengganu Chapter Office,” said MATTA CEO Phua Tai Neng. “We trust that with the newly opened office we will continue to improve our services to members and with better facilities to conduct training sessions conveniently.”
