LIMA '09: Free daily entry to maritime show

LANGKAWI: There is good news for visitors to the coming Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace exhibition (Lima '09).

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi yesterday announced that the public may now view the maritime segment of the five-day show without charge every day."In previous years, the public were only allowed to watch the displays of ships and boats on the last day of the exhibition. "However, for this year's Lima, the maritime segment is open to the public every day of the exhibition," he said after inspecting the aerospace exhibition ground at Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC) here.

The exhibition will showcase 96 warships and other vessels. A total of 40,000 trade visitors are expected to flood Lima '09. Zahid said discussions were ongoing with Lima '09 organiser HW Lima Sdn Bhd to halve the admission fee for the aerospace segment for the public to RM10.

"The aerospace segment is open to the public on the last day of the exhibition, for a fee of RM20 per person. I hope the organiser could consider my request that the fee be slashed by 50 per cent to RM10."
