State represented at global virtual conference on tourism

MELAKA tourism players are going global to discuss the impact of Covid-19 crisis on tourism ecosystem. The pandemic had caused a growing number of hotel cancellations here, especially after the conditional movement control order (CMCO) was implemented in the Klang Valley.

Datuk Marco Seow, who represented two Melaka tourism-related associations, and Melaka Tourism Business Club vice-chairman Dennis Samford joined an international video-conferencing.

Medical practitioners from England, Scotland, Singapore and India shared about how they managed Covid-19 patients and the setbacks that they faced.

They also shared the bigger picture of measures to deal with the effects of the pandemic in their respective countries.

The video-conferencing organised by Krescendo Communication of Singapore was supposed to be launched by Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.

However, Sulaiman had to rush to Johor Baru to attend an urgent meeting.

The online forum that was hosted by social activist Ganesh Somwanshi from Singapore lasted for almost two hours where panellists from various countries and observers from media outlets were also invited to the live stream.

Seow and Samford explored the opportunities in making Melaka a hub for medical tourism by inviting the various hospitals abroad to venture into the industry here after Covid-19.
