Celebration of time
Kuala Lumpur, 8 December 2012
"Ever since 1999, when the Malaysian government with strong YTL encouragement, waived the duty on luxury watches, we felt the need to put a continuous effort in promoting Malaysia's duty-free status on an international level while placing the country prominently in the world map for its horology highlights," says Joseph Yeoh, YTL Land & Development and YTL Hotels Vice-President.

This showcase is where true masterpieces are discovered and Yeoh hopes that one day AJTT will achieve the stature of Baselworld Fair of Asia because he believes their intentions have been received positively by professionals in the watch industry.

"The showcase offers watchmakers the opportunity to exhibit their latest creations six months earlier than they could at the Baselworld Fair. This would allow retailers to have the latest watches in store and ready to sell for the spring/summer season, creating an additional sale period which would help grow the watch industry."

"Due to Malaysia being in such close proximity to China and other Asia Pacific countries as well as possessing the largest dedicated retail space for luxurious watch outlets in the world in Starhill Gallery where all the watches and jewellery are set at cheaper prices due to our duty-free policy, AJTT has the potential to turn Malaysia into a mini Basel," adds Yeoh.

“Since YTL took over Starhill in 1999, the Malaysian Government has supported the tourism industry by lifting duties on watches, cameras and luxury goods. As a result, Jaeger LeCoultre and many others have opened their flagship stores in Kuala Lumpur,” said Yeoh.

Dr Ng attributed Kuala Lumpur’s stunning success to what she called the 5 P’s. “First ‘P’ is Public Policy by the Government which has always supported tourism!

“The second ‘P’ is Private Enterprise and we need events like this to make Kuala Lumpur a top luxury shopping destination and visionaries like Tan Sri Francis Yeoh.
