Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association (MCTA) was initially incorporated by a group of concerned and dedicated Malaysian Chinese travel agents. It was officially registered with the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on 14th Sept. 1992
It the 9 years of existences, MCTA has not had a home to call its own until 23rd Nov 2001. With the supports and contributions of the members, the association managed to purchase its secretariat office which is made up of 1,406 square feet of office space at 2 – 3A, Jalan Pandan 2/1, Pandan Jaya, 55100Kuala Lumpur.
Since then, we had expanded to other states with the formation of our Chapters in Johor, Perak, Sabah and Penang. As today we are one of the top five tourism associations in Malaysia with more than 800 members.
Our annual event, the Malaysia International Travel Mart (MITM Travel Fair) has gained increasing recognition as one of the most sought after travel fair for the tour operators, national tourism organizations since it was started in 2001.
