Hope on the Horizon for Tourism Sector

Malaysia will be opening its borders to international travellers on April 1st. The move comes as relief to the ailing tourism sector, which has relied heavily on domestic tourism for the past two years since borders were shut in March 2020. We catch-up with Nigel Wong of MATTA on the outlook for travel and tourism in light of the reopening. Image credit: Shutterstock.com
