Speaking on the sidelines of a media evening with Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) on Monday evening, H E Dato' Rustam Yahaya, Ambassador of Malaysia to the sultanate said, ''Honourable Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is likely to visit Oman between May 11 and 15.

''We are aiming at 36mn tourists from all over the world by 2020. This will be more than the population of Malaysia,'' he said. He said that Omanis do not need visas to visit Malaysia.


''Many Omanis have bought properties in Malaysia and continue to do so every year. The country is also a preferred honeymoon destination among Omanis and this year, we are promoting it as a shopping destination, too,'' he added.


Regarding future business collaborations with the country he said, ''We ae looking at the possibility of participating in the upcoming rail project.


''A Malaysian company has submitted a project in this regard. We will participate in some desalination plant projects in Sohar, Duqm and Salalah.''

Ranked No 3 worldwide for its healthcare system by International Living in its 2014 Global Retirement Index, Malaysia is now well known and a sought-after destination for medical tourism.
