Volcano Floating PartyAlthough Indonesia and Malaysia have been badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic, the circumstance has pushed both ASEAN countries to work together.

Malaysia is one of Indonesia’s biggest markets in terms of international tourists.

In 2019, Indonesia recorded around 2.09 million tourists from Malaysia.

This adds greater significance for Indonesia and Malaysia to partner up and revive their tourism sectors post-pandemic.

“Indonesia and Malaysia have a long history of partnerships in several sectors especially tourism,” said Nia Niscaya.

Until the borders of both ASEAN countries reopen, Malaysia will focus on its domestic market through the government’s ongoing programs.

Health protocol preparation

Indonesia’s tourism ministry has prepared a handbook designed for stakeholders in the tourism and the creative economy sectors.

The handbook, titled "Cleanliness, Health, and Safety," takes reference from the global standards of Covid-19-related health protocols.

It contains more detailed protocols than those drafted by Indonesia’s Ministry of Health. The application of the handbook is hoped to be able to gain the trust of tourists.
