The Sabah Tourism, Culture, and Environment Ministry will set up a committee to develop and introduce steps to revive the tourism industry in the state post-COVID-19, said its Minister Datuk Jafry Ariffin.
He said in a statement that the committee will include industry players.
"A meeting and discussion session with industry players was held at Wisma Tun Fuad Stephen, Kota Kinabalu this morning to discuss this matter and measures to revive the state’s tourism industry," he said.
Jafry said that some of the topics discussed related to government allocations that are primarily aimed at promoting the tourism industry and the welfare of pandemic workers.
He said that the Ministry would cooperate with several associated agencies to refine the views of tourism industry players on aid in particular.
In the same statement, the committee had been scheduled to hold its first meeting next week, according to Assistant Minister of the Tourism, Culture and the Environment Datuk Joniston Bangkuai.
