In May, total tourist arrivals surged 97.3% from Apr to 8,139. But year-on-year, total tourist arrivals plummeted 99.9%, with arrivals from Mainland China and non-Mainland China diving 99.9% and 99.8% respectively – see figure 1. In Jan-May 2020, tourist arrivals plummeted 88.2% to 3.50 mln compared with a year ago.


The Covid-19 pandemic has hit tourism in the city hard. With the passing of the National Security Law and the fact that the pandemic has been brought under control in Hong Kong and Mainland China, hopefully the return of stability will bring about a recovery in the tourism industry in the near future.

Note from Publisher
Malaysia implemented the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) starting 10 Jun. Since then, more and more restrictions have been lifted - even kindergartens have been allowed to reopen. Happily, unlike many other countries, Malaysia has not experienced a resurgence in the number of confirmed cases after relaxing most of the Covid-19 related restrictions. If such a positive development continues and people remain cautious, Malaysia should be free from the SARS-CoV-2 virus by the time the RMCO ends on 31 Aug, and Malaysia’s 63rd Independence Day will be celebrated with a new reason for all Malaysians to be proud of their country.

So far, Capital Dynamics has organised two virtual conferences for subscribers and investors on the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy and their investments. We also shared with participants on our market and investment outlook. Both conferences were half-day events and were well-attended. Participants found the contents insightful and very beneficial. However, both conferences were conducted in English and Chinese-speaking investors were unable to participate. As a result, we are pleased to announce that Capital Dynamics will organise a similar investment conference in Mandarin on 1 Aug. Keep an eye for the details.
