TOURISM MALAYSIA INDIA GEARS UP FOR BORDER REOPENING!

Chennai, 20 February 2021 – In anticipation of border reopening, Tourism
Malaysia India Offices are engaging with Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI)
and Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI) in a three-day meeting starting 19
February 2021 to set sights on strategic planning and come up with key initiatives,
strategies and activities.

Organised at the ITC Gardenia, the Directors and the entire marketing staffs from
Tourism Malaysia New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai Offices are also meeting up with
tour operators and travel agents of Bengaluru to get feedback on the current COVID-
19 pandemic to woo back Indian tourists to Malaysia.

The meeting also serves to update the partners on Malaysia’s latest situation as well
as tourism products and developments.

Mr Sulaiman Suip, Director of Tourism Malaysia – New Delhi Office said, the recent
Malaysia Airlines achievement in receiving full marks for its COVID-19 health and
safety measures (by Airline Ratings) shows Malaysia’s preparedness and commitment
towards safety and hygiene. Therefore, we will continue to build confidence and
awareness that hopefully will translate into a desire to travel to Malaysia once the
crisis ends.

Mr Hafiz Hashim, Director of Tourism Malaysia – Mumbai Office said, the other focal
point is the much-anticipated opening of the outdoor theme park in Genting Highland
in the second quarter of 2021. The official opening of this ‘Genting Skyworlds’ is music
to travellers’ ears and the travel industry alike.

Meanwhile, Mr Razaidi Rahim, Director of Tourism Malaysia – Chennai Office said,
Malaysia is also committed to brand itself as an ecotourism destination, with an outlook
towards balancing the development and conservation of its natural environment &
heritage.

India remains one of the top market sources for Malaysia and contributed 735,309
international tourist arrivals in 2019. The first two months of 2020 recorded a
phenomenal cumulative growth of +29%. However, the spread of the coronavirus
globally led the countries to close their borders and cancelling most flights.
