Kuching – Sarawak is optimistic that the tourism industry in the state is ready to reopen by end of 2021 as over 2000 tourism industry players received their second dose of Covid-19 vaccination by August 2021.

Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Sarawak (MTAC) Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said this is in line with Sarawak’s route into Phase 3 of the National Recovery Plan, and hopes to get tourism and business-events sectors going by fourth quarter of this year.
