Kota Kinabalu: TOURIST arrivals into Sabah are on the upward trend despite the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) being actively upgraded, CM Datuk Seri Musa said.
He said there were 175,288 arrivals up to April this year compared to 161,335 in the same period last year.
"This shows that efforts towards developing the State's tourism sector are starting to bear fruits," he said.
Musa, who is also Finance Minister, said Sabah saw 2.091 million visitors in 2006 compared to 1.828 million in the previous year.
"(So) in view of this positive development in tourism arrivals, those directly involved in the industry must take a proactive approach in fulfilling the needs of our guests," he said.
