MELAKA: The Melaka government is working closely with tourism players in the state to revive the travel industry affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Chief Minister Datuk Sulaiman Md Ali said new approaches needed to be outlined to rejuvenate the tourism sector in the state.

“There is a need for a close working relationship with the state government and tourism players to revitalise the domestic tourism, ” he

said on Monday (June 15).

Sulaiman had earlier launched a tourism campaign called "Dream Now, Travel Later" at his office in Seri Negeri here.

He said the campaign, from June 1 to Dec 31, can be accessed through an app called "Melaka eXcess" which can be downloaded from Google Play and the App Store.

Suliaman said the campaign allows various tourism players in the state to offer discounts starting from 10% for entrance tickets to their destinations, and access to their products and services.

He added that to date, 200 tourism-related companies within the state had registered under the Melaka eXcess application to promote their

products and services.
