Is there a future for Travel in the Covid-19 era?

With hardly any planes flying, borders closed and most countries in some form of a lockdown, we speak to Yap Lip Seng, CEO of the Malaysian Association of Hotels (MAH) and Nigel Wong, Honorary Secretary General for Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (Matta) to find out how badly their sector has been affected. We also take a deeper dive on whether the government is providing adequate support for this important contributor to the economy whilst asking if travel is possible at this time.
