Greetings and Salam 1Malaysia.

Welcome to the Official Portal of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia, www.motac.gov.my.

Today's rapid technological advancement has certainly created a borderless government. In the context of information dissemination, the online media is one of the most useful platforms to ensure messages are being delivered precisely and speedily. Websites, particularly, play a vital role in this process and the enhanced of the credibility of an organization. As such, the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC) has always emphasized the importance of this tool (website) in sharing important information to both internal and external public.

As we know, tourism industry in Malaysia is a people-based industry and undeniably is one of the main contributors towards the country's Gross National Income. As a matter of fact, it is one of the National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) in the government's vision to make Malaysia as a high-income nation by 2020.

Furthermore, our diversity in culture and heritage has been our Unique Selling Point (USP) that has always enticed foreign tourists to come to Malaysia. It is MOTAC's mission to continue developing and preserving our tourism and culture products as creatively and proactively possible for the sustainability of the industry and making Malaysia as top-of-the-mind destination in the world.

Finally, it is my ardent hope that the information in this website would benefit you and provide you with knowledge related to the country's tourism and culture sectors. I look forward to your continuous suggestions and ideas in together bringing our tourism and culture sectors to greater heights.

Thank you.
