KUALA TERENGGANU, Dec 27 -- The Terengganu government, through the State Tourism Department, is participating in the week-long 2020 Dubai Expo being held at the Dubai Exhibition Centre since yesterday.

State Tourism, Culture and Digital Technology Committee, Ariffin Deraman said it was part of the measures to promote the state’s tourism and penetrate the markets in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Middle East.

He said the expo, which involved the participation of more than 190 countries and world business organisations, was the best platform for Terengganu to introduce the uniqueness of the state and its products.

"This is Terengganu's first involvement in an international expo and we sincerely hope that it can open up opportunities and attracts the outside community to the uniqueness of Terengganu's ecotourism,” he said in a statement today.

Besides promoting Terengganu tourism products such as Tasik Kenyir, Setiu Wetlands, the islands and beaches, Ariffin said, it was also to identify investment opportunities in the tourism sector.

He said the delegation from Terengganu would take advantage of the week-long visit to explore investment opportunities through several programmes coordinated with the media in the UAE, engagement sessions with Dubai tourism activists, 'tourism talks' and visits.

The 2020 Dubai Expo 2020 which was supposed to take place from Oct 20, 2020 to April 10, 2021 had to be postponed to Oct 1 this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will run until March 31, 2022 with the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’.
