MACEOS suggests permanent special lanes for Malaysia-Indonesia travellers


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS) has suggested for airports and immigration departments to look into providing permanent special lanes and counters to travellers between Malaysia and Indonesia.

It said in a statement that it welcomed the agreement to implement the Reciprocal Green Lane/Travel Corridor Arrangement (RGL/TCA) between the two countries.

"We look forward to seeing the opening of borders between Malaysia and Indonesia and anticipate that this would facilitate the movement of business travellers between the two countries.

"The success of this Reciprocal Green Lane would help support and speed up the opening of the business events industry in Malaysia,” said MACEOS president Francis Teo.

Meanwhile, Teo also urged the Malaysian government to expedite the roll-out of the vaccination programme in Malaysia to catch up with other countries.

"“We have written to the Malaysian government expressing our interest in contributing towards the successful roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccination to the rakyat.

"Our members include 29 convention centre operators located in many major cities in the country. We have proposed to work with the government by designating these participating venues as temporary mass vaccination centres during the vaccination delivery," he said.
