Deputy Chairman, Tourim Malaysia, Dato' Zainol Abidin Omar highlighted the national campaign 'Visit Malaysia 2020', which has been launched for the first time at the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2018 on January 26th in Chiang Mai, Thailand where the official logo of Visit Malaysia 2020, a colourful portrayal of Malaysia's treasured flora and fauna was unveiled.

Dato' Zainol Abidin Omar said, "These next two years are a crucial period for our country's tourism – they are the lead up to the much-anticipated Visit Malaysia 2020. By then, we expect to welcome some 36 million tourists to our shores with tourist receipts reaching RM168 billion."

Visit Malaysia 2020 is a landmark initiative that has received the support and endorsement of the Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia in 2017. It is a key development towards the realization of the Malaysia Tourism Transformation Plan goals that by the year 2020.

The initiative not only aims to rally all industry players towards this common goal, but is a call to welcome tourists from all over the world to experience Malaysia's warm hospitality and diverse tourist attractions.

The campaign will be aligned with World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO)'s "Travel.Enjoy.Respect" movement launched in August 2017 which calls for tourists to become a catalyst for positive change towards a better future.

In 2020, it is expected that inbound tourists will generate over RM 168 billion to the tourism industry in Malaysia. The campaign is promoted due to its plan to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2020.
