Known as the face of Johor’s culture and tradition, the whole unit of both Yayasan Warisan Johor and Tourism Johor had joined together on stage in which each of their departments and units staffs performed one by one, starting with coaches and trainers from Yayasan Warisan Johor.
The event is an early announcement of the two organisations’ joint venture to make the upcoming Visit Johor 2020 aspiration and vision successful.
The ‘Majestic Johor’ theme is inspired by their aspiration to make touring around the state of Johor even more exciting and enticing as the domestic and foreign tourists would be discovering and be in the know of the hidden gems in Johor.
The word ‘Majestic’ in use is derived from the word ‘Ta’zim’ of ‘Johor Darul Ta’zim’; as it brings the meaning of glorious to be a Johorean as the people of Johor represents the state’s rich variant culture and tradition.
The celebration ended earlier as the MB Johor and his envoy made their journey to Pasir Gudang, to give a statement on the toxic gas issue that has caused several schools in the area to shut down.
