KOTA KINABALU, 6 May 2021: Sabah Tourism Board will continue representation on the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), this time at the top board level, for another two-year term from 2021 to 2023.
Sabah Tourism Board general manager Noredah Othman is the newly elected PATA Executive Board member. She brings with her almost 30 years of experience in the tourism industry.
