IPOH – Taiping has been identified as one of the destinations that will receive many visitors for the Year of Visiting Perak 2024.
The state government through Tourism Perak and the Taiping Municipal Council (MPT) has taken several initiatives to empower Taiping’s 150th Anniversary celebrations.
Accordingly, MPT has established a master committee to plan events and programs to implement the celebration next year.
Chairman of the Perak State Tourism Committee, Loh Sze Yee said, several high-impact programs capable of bringing in many tourists will be organized.
Among them, are the Taiping Endurance Challenge, Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival and Taiping City’s 150th Year Celebration.
“MPT is targeting 150 events starting from the creation of the Taiping City 150 Year Slogan and Logo Design which is used as promotional material on posters, signs and so on.
“In addition, MPT is also making preparations to publish the ‘Coffee Table Book 150 Years of Taiping City (1874-2024)’ which will be launched during the opening ceremony of the celebration,” he said.
He said this while answering an oral question at the Perak State Legislative Assembly yesterday.
For further continuity, many more programs and activities are still in the initial stages of planning by MPT until 2024.
