GEORGE TOWN: A PROPOSAL has been mooted to restore the free port status of Penang to boost international tourism investments.

It is learnt that the proposal has been forwarded to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop and chairman of Tourism Malaysia Datuk Dr Victor Wee Eng Lye.

“Discussions are ongoing to make Penang a tourist haven and complement Langkawi’s free port status,” a source told the New Straits Times.

The source said the free port status for Penang is part of a move to improve the tourism appeal of both Penang and Langkawi and attract high-net investors to both islands.
