The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry is ready to revise the design of the Visit Malaysia 2020 logo if required, says its minister Mohammadin Ketapi.
“People say the logo was criticised, but to me, it’s not like that as everyone has his or her own perspective.
“In fact, we have a long time before 2020 to improve on or touch up the existing design if necessary,” he said today.
Launched in Chiang Mai, Thailand, by former tourism and culture minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz in conjunction with Asean Tourism earlier this year, the Visit Malaysia 2020 logo drew flak from netizens for its seemingly “poor design”.
Among the grouses were that the logo looked “unprofessional” and “very ordinary”.
Nazri however, stood by the design, saying it was created by in-house staff and no cost was incurred in producing it.
The Visit Malaysia 2020 campaign aims to attract more than 36 million tourists to the country, generating revenue of up to RM168 billion.
Mohammadin said he was willing to continue with the policies and plans laid out by his predecessor if they were indeed of benefit to the people and country.
