Kuala Lumpur, 16th March 2013

The Formula 1 Grand Prix returns to Malaysia this year, and with it, comes the exciting Grand Prix Sale which takes place from 16th March to 7th April, sweeping the nation with 23 days of glorious discounts and promotions.

The sale, which is supported by the Bukit Bintang-KLCC Tourism Association, was launched by Tourism Minister Dato’ Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen at the Bukit Bintang entrance of Pavilion KL.

This was followed by a fashion show by models and production company Andrewmodels.

These sale campaigns and events are part of the Tourism Ministry and Tourism Malaysia’s initiatives of turning Malaysia into a leading international shopping destination, which has received international recognition. Last year, Kuala Lumpur ranked second best shopping city in the Asia Pacific according to the latest Globe Shopper Index, while CNN report listed Kuala Lumpur as the best shopping destination in the world.

Last year, Malaysia received 25.03 million tourists, with tourist receipts amounting to RM60.6 billion. Shopping contributed to 30.7% of the total tourist revenue, with a grand total of RM18.56 billion.

There’s no denying that tourism played an important part in the economic development of Malaysia. I just hope the government will be more proactive in improving the few sore problems that affected KL in particular – taxi service, cleanliness, snatch thieves and transportation issue in general.
