Ep 54. YB Datuk Seri Panglima Masidi Manjun – Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Sabah
What It’s About
In this episode, Dana sits down with YB Datuk Seri Panglima Masidi Manjun to discuss one
of Sabah’s largest industries, tourism, the opportunity for entrepreneurs in this space and how
the Sabah government balances protecting the environment while also growing the tourism
industry. The Sabah Tourism Board, or generally known as Sabah Tourism, is an agency of
the Sabah State Government operating under the purview of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture
and Environment. Sabah Tourism’s primary responsibility is the marketing and promotion of
tourism for the State.
Tourism is Sabah’s third largest and one of the important income generating sectors which
supports more than 80,000 jobs. Striving to ensure that tourism remains an important
economic pillar, Sabah Tourism, continues to promote and market Sabah as a world-class
premier eco tourism destination.
Since it was established in August 1976, Sabah Tourism’s responsibilities have continually
expanded and defined to cater to the current needs of the global tourism market.
