Tourism Malaysia has announced the appointment of Mr. Wee Choo Keong as new Chairman. The appointment, made by the Minister of Tourism & Culture YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, was effective 17 June 2015.
Mr. Wee is a Barrister-at-Law from the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn, London, and has been a practising advocate and solicitor of more than 32 years. Upon being called to the Bar at the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn, he returned to Malaysia in 1980 where he was actively involved in serving the community through his legal consultation. The political and social development in Malaysia were also issues that were close to his heart, and this saw him serve two terms as Member of Parliament (MP) for Bukit Bintang, the heart of commerce and tourism in Kuala Lumpur, and another term as MP for Wangsa Maju.
Mr. Wee views the Chairmanship at Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board as an extension of his contribution to the betterment of Malaysia.
“As Chairman of the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board (Tourism Malaysia), I want to do the best for our country and will protect our national interests at all costs. I am also grateful to YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, the Minister of Tourism and Culture, for the appointment and trust he has in me,” said Mr Wee.
