THE upcoming Budget 2022 should support the recovery of travel and hospitality operators, says Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.

The Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister hopes the Budget – which will be tabled on Friday (Oct 29) – will provide necessary assistance to help travel providers stand on their feet again.

“We want to help the tourism industry so that they can restart and reset,” she said at an event in Bandar Sunway, Selangor on Wednesday.

According to Nancy, operators would also need to upgrade their facilities after months of downtime to better cater to tourists.

“There are some destinations and premises or even homestays that need to be renovated and upgraded.

“At the same time, tourists would expect tourism infrastructure to be on par with quality tourism (experiences),” she said.

Nancy was at the launch of the "Jom Jalan Jalan" campaign, an initiative in partnership with Petron Malaysia, to promote the resumption of domestic tourism.

The five-month long initiative aims to encourage Malaysians to explore the many wonderful tourist spots in the country.

During the event, Nancy also called for more partnerships between stakeholders to encourage a faster recovery of the tourism sector.
