Tourism Plays An Integral Role As Pillar Of Peace & Recovery
During his address at the recent Conference of Tourism Ministers of the European Union, United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) secretary-general Zurab Pololikashvili said that in the face of current global challenges such as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the climate emergency and war in Europe, tourism has an active role to play in reasserting shared values and promoting peace. He also highlighted the case for enhanced cooperation and international solidarity to provide hope for millions of people across the globe.
Several countries have completely lifted all Covid-19 restrictions and SOP. Malaysia in the meantime, is set to reopen borders and welcome international tourists once again into the country. Fully-vaccinated travellers no longer have to quarantine upon arrival to Malaysia, while Malaysia Airlines will be increasing its frequency of flights to a few popular international destinations. The national carrier will be reinstating scheduled commercial services to some destinations, including to India (New Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad) after nearly 24 months of suspension.
