Tourism Malaysia happy with increase in Thai tourists

BANGKOK: Thai tourist arrivals to Malaysia in the first quarter of this year recorded a 31.7% increase compared to the same period last year. Tourism Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar director Sulaiman Suip said during the period, some 409,000 Thai tourists visited Malaysia compared to 311,000 in the first quarter of 2015.

“We hope this positive trend will continue throughout the year. We will continue to promote Malaysia as a family holiday destination to the Thais,” he said recently. He said the contributing factors included the strengthen of the Thai baht against the Malaysian Ringgit which made Malaysia a more attractive and affordable holiday destination in the region.

Thailand’s economic stability, which registered a 3.3% growth in the first quarter of this year, was another factor, he added. He said aggressive promotions by airlines and travel agencies offering tourism packages to Malaysia also contributed to the positive increase in the number of Thai tourists to Malaysia.

“Tourism products like Legoland theme park, Sunway Lagoon and Lost World of Tambun continue to be aggressively promoted among Thai tourists,” he said, noting sales of tourism packages to Malaysia in April rose 15%. — Bernama

星期四,3/11/2016 雙威大學商業學院經濟學教授姚金龍博士指出,全球貿易預計將在2017年稍微好轉,并有望幫助我國穩住在2020年成為高收入國家的聲勢。 姚金龍稱,國際貨幣基金組織(IMF)在最新的報告中預計我國今年的國內生產總值(GDP)將達4.3%,明年則預計為4.6%。 該組織認為,我國經濟成長受累于淨出口的情況將在明年得到緩解,這表示在需求回穩的提振下,出口將回暖。 “明年,美國的經濟情況是全球經濟主要的成長動力,在總統大選后,相信可看到更清晰的經濟局勢。不過,近期指標均顯示美國經濟成長符合預測,所以明年全球經濟環境料比今年進步。” 另外,本地外來直接投資額(FDI)由雙位數下滑至個位數,至于箇中原因為何,姚金龍則稱需要進一步觀察。 不過,他說近期外來直接投資的型態有所轉變,從過去著重投資于製造業,轉變為目前的服務業,如互聯網服務、電子商貿、清真食品領域和金融領域。   图文来自:网路  

对已故主人相思未了,猫咪终日守在主人坟前

星期四,3/11/2016 对已故主人相思未了,猫咪苦苦2守在主人坟前长达一年。 据英国《每日邮报》10月31日报道,印尼中爪哇省(Central Java),一只悲伤的小猫因过度想念过世的主人,竟然在主人坟前守了1年之久。 有时候,甚至还可以听到猫咪躺在墓地前哀号的声音。 纵然有好心的路人经常为小猫提供食物和饮水,但它仍然不愿离开墓地,每天晚上在地上打滚,然后睡在那里。 28岁的普雷伊诺(Keli Keningau Prayitno)曾尝试收养它,但它总是回到墓地,守在蓝色墓碑前。 普雷伊诺说:“我以为它是流浪猫,想要帮它。但每次它都会重新回到墓地。” 普雷伊诺说,经过调查之后,他才知道猫咪的前主人是一位老妇人,1年前去世。 他表示曾经跟踪过小猫,发现它有时回到曾生活过的地方,已故主人的孩子在喂它,吃饱后,这只小猫会重新回到墓地。 普雷伊诺称看到这些画面让人感到十分忧伤,也显示出小猫与主人的关系多么亲密。   图文来自:网路
