KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 — Jean Todt, the former executive director of Formula 1 Ferrari, has been chosen as Tourism Malaysia's ambassador for a year.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen told reporters yesterday that the appointment letter would be handed over to Todt in Paris.

Asked why Todt was chosen as the agency's ambassador, Dr Ng said: "Because Jean Todt is well known internationally. He believes in Malaysia. He has a wide network of friends."

Dr Ng said Todt, who is also the fiance of Ipoh-born international actress Datuk Michelle Yeoh, applied to join the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme and received the approval letter last month.

On her visit to Europe, Dr Ng said besides Paris, her delegation would also be in Amsterdam and London to promote the MM2H programme. — Bernama
