The Task Of Attracting Tourists, Is Malaysia Doing Enough?

Nigel Wong, President, Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta)

The Task Of Attracting Tourists, Is Malaysia Doing Enough?

Malaysia eases visa rules for China and India, key sources of tourist arrivals as we push for more revenue in this sector. This is on the back of similar proposals by ASEAN neighbours such as Thailand. Is Malaysia competitive enough to pull tourists from our neighbours while the country grapples with inflationary pressures and a higher degree of expectations from global travellers? We analyse this with Nigel Wong, President of the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents.
