Malaysian incentive and business travel hoped to rebound in May after slow start to the year. The downturn in 2018 has been attributed to the elections and month long Ramadan.
Syed, Razif Al-Yahya, MD of Sutra Group of Companies said that, “We still received travel bookings, but it was mainly domestic bookings. Overall, government business saw a drop of 30 percent in April and May, compared to the same period in 2017. Local corporate movements leading up to the general election have been slow (due to the) postponements of travel and incentives.”
