KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 16 (Bernama) -- Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is set to add new facilities and services to the city in an effort to attract 12 million international tourists this year, said its Mayor, Datuk Seri Mhd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz.
Mhd Amin Nordin said services such as public transport, education, food and medical would be improved to boost tourism in the city.
"KL can be developed as a unique international brand, especially in Asia, as we have our own plus points such as a vibrant city which is clean and safe," he told reporters after attending a meeting of the Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau Board of Directors meeting, here Tuesday.
The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Tourism and Culture Ministry, AirAsia X, Malaysia Airports Berhad and the KL Chapter of the Malaysian Association of Hotels.
"All the industry players such as hotel, restaurant and transport operators must be more creative and innovative in developing their own strategies to attract more foreign tourists here (KL)," he said.
A total of 11.63 million tourists arrived in KL last year, an increase of four per cent from the previous year.
