8 April 2020
On 7 April 2020 (Tuesday), I had the pleasure of representing the President and MATTA members in a meeting with the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) of the Prime Minister's Office in Putrajaya.
In attendance were a few key NGOs and tourism organisations which included MAH, Malaysia Airlines Berhad, MYBHA, MITA and the MHTC. Also in attendance were representatives from various government agencies most notably MOTAC. The purpose of the meeting was to look into short and mid-term measures to stimulate the tourism industry post MCO and post Covid-19 which will be presented to the EAC in its weekly meetings.

We will continue to follow up and engage with the government as we have been doing since before the start of the pandemic and we will keep you informed.
