The Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau support the Malaysian government decision to reopen the borders of the country.  This according to the bureau will rejuvenate Malaysia’s economic activities from businesses, investments, conferences and exhibitions.

This year, MyCEB is expected to organise a total of 81 business events with about 113,700 delegates to Malaysia contributing an estimate of RM834 million to the economy.

While MyCEB backs the government’s decision to reopen the country’s border, the bureau has also urged that the government set a definite timeline for the reopening.

This year, Malaysia will play host to several international and regional business events activities. The government’s earlier initiatives claimed by the chief executive officer of MyCEB, Dato’Sri Abdul Khani Daud such as the Langkawi International Tourism Travel Bubble and the Singapore-Malaysia Vaccinated Travel Lane has proven that the country, can move towards careful reopening.
