MATTA calls for a gradual reopening in Malaysia
The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) warns Malaysia will miss out on the tourism recovery as ASEAN neighbours start opening up again.
MATTA calls for a gradual reopening by starting with allowing fully vaccinated travellers from across Southeast Asia. MATTA President, Tan Kok Liang, says inbound tourism from ASEAN countries makes up 70% of all foreign arrivals.
“To make sure the reopening of borders will not affect our Covid-19 prevention measures, we can carry out risk evaluation and reciprocate with countries that low risk,” MATTA said.
