Malaysia's Pavilion To Promote Tourism And Trade

2009. 29 August

( Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen and Shanghai's City Council deputy secretary-general Hong Hao today performed the ground-breaking ceremony for Malaysia's pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo here.

The pavilion, with the theme of "1Malaysia: Harmonised City Living" will be completed by the year end.

Dr Ng said Malaysia's theme was in tune with the expo theme, "Better City, Better Living", as it showcased the strengths of Malaysia's city living.

"When it comes to city living, people want good quality of life. Therefore, the concept of the pavilion portrays Malaysia's harmonious multicultural society, elements of nature, modern facilities and the nation's achievements," she told Malaysian reporters after the ground-breaking ceremony.

Dr Ng said Malaysia's pavilion would also showcase the country's various tourist attractions, services and products, as the aim was not just to promote its tourism industry but also as a destination for trade and investment.

As such, she said, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) would take charge of showcasing the latest developments of Malaysian products such as palm oil, rubber, electronic goods and timber.

Dr Ng said the design of the pavilion combined cultural and heritage elements, including Negeri Sembilan's architectural design, with modernity.

The 3,000-square metre Malaysia Pavilion is expected to receive 10,000 to 15,000 visitors daily, during the World Expo to be held from May 1 to Oct 31 next year.
