According to Nancy, the organisation of WTC 2022 will be carried out in a strategic collaboration between the ministry and the Sabah government via the Sabah Tourism Board.
She said WTC is an exclusive conference organised by Malaysia in collaboration with the World Tourism Organisation (WTO).
The conference is held every three years and this will be the sixth time Malaysia is hosting following the success of the fifth edition.
For Sabah, this will be the second time that Kota Kinabalu has been selected to host the conference, she said.
This was a sign of recognition to the commitment and leadership shown by the state government which emphasised the development of the tourism sector in making Sabah a major world travel destination, she said.
Present at the meeting were State Secretary Datuk Seri Safar Untong, Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister deputy secretary general (tourism) Mohd Zamri May Zain and senior ministry officials.
