Penang PR government spent RM 0 for its popular tourism facebook vs BN government 1.76 million

Ng Yen Yen showing her incompetent and wasteful nature again. I often visit her facebook and see nothing is professional except a flash image which I (as a non-IT man) can design at a fraction of cost.

Philippines is having an online campaign to put Puerto Princesa Underground River on the seven nature wonders.

Why don’t Ng Yen Yen compares her ministry facebook spending with Penang state tourism facebook?

This below facebook design work cost is no more than RM3000, not that exorbitant RM300,000 paid by Tourism Ministry.

RM1.8mil FB page to boost tourism

THE Tourism Ministry needs to allocate funds to reach out to global travellers, including youngsters, through social media, Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said.

She said a RM1,758,432 allocation by the ministry to develop its Facebook page professionally was part of its social media campaign, adding that it was a small amount compared to that spent by other countries in the region.

The Philippines spent RM7mil on social media for its tourism campaign while Australia had allocated about A$150mil (RM485mil) over the next three years.

Dr Ng was hitting out at those questioning in Parliament the ministry’s expenditure to develop its Facebook page.

She said these people must understand that the tourism sector was one of the main revenue earners for the country.

Earlier, Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit (Mambong-BN) had explained that the ministry spent close to RM1.8mil to develop its Facebook page to promote the ministry’s domestic tourism market and activities from this year to year 2013.

Either BN isor they are dumb to waste the money or they are smart in corruption.

I guess it is both.

That’s why we need BERSIH.
Vote BN out!
