Bringing Malaccans Together and Melaka to the World
FilePic: Sinar HarianPUTRAJAYA: The move to offer visa-free entry to tourists from China will help Malaysia tap the potential of the republic's outbound tourism market which is growing significantly every year.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai noted that it would generate more tourism receipts from China for the country.
In his recalibrated 2016 Budget unveiled here today, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said that tourists from China would not require a visa to visit Malaysia between March 1 and Dec 31 this year.
However, he said the visa-free offer for Chinese tourists was subject to specific conditions for a period of stay not exceeding 15 days.
Najib also said more focus would be given to the tourism sector as the increase in tourist arrivals would stimulate domestic economic growth, particularly in the current economic scenario.
