He said hopefully, the short-term plan would help restore the economic well-being of the Langkawi community who have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.Muhammad Sanusi said to attract tourists, Langkawi must be promoted as a safe and enjoyable holiday destination, and as such, stakeholders were encouraged to offer attractive packages such as the “Langkawi Great Sale” at several strategic locations.
“Langkawi also needs to host high-impact events such as sports events, cultural performances, e-sports tournaments, concerts, PUBG (an online game) competitions and food festivals.“These events will comply with the new norms to ensure the island is free of Covid-19, and will help revive the ailing tourism industry in Langkawi,” he said. headtopics.com
