Manoharan Periasamy takes over as Director General of Malaysia Tourism


Former India Director of Tourism Malaysia, Manoharan Periasamy has taken over as Director General of the tourism promotion agency, effective today.

In his immediate past role, he served as Senior Director for International Promotion (Asia & Africa) at Tourism Malaysia.

He is the first Malaysian-Indian to be appointed as the DG for Tourism Malaysia. He has served three consecutive terms as Director of Tourism Malaysia for India, and was instrumental in setting up the first NTO office in Mumbai way back in 2001.

Malaysia’s tourism landscape is set to embrace a new chapter with Periasamy taking over as Director General of Tourism Malaysia. He carries with him a wealth of experience and a proven track record in tourism promotion to amplify Malaysia’s appeal as a global travel destination.

With a focus on showcasing Malaysia’s unique offerings and leveraging international partnerships, Periasamy’s leadership is expected to catalyse a significant uptick in tourism performance, contributing substantially to the nation’s economy.

Periasamy’s vision for Tourism Malaysia encompasses not just a revival of the sector but a robust transformation aimed at sustainable growth. A notable strategy already under his belt is the emphasis on airline route development and partnerships.
