SELANGOR yesterday launched the “Nak Bercuti? Pusing Selangor Dulu!” (Want to go for a holiday? Explore Selangor First!) campaign, in an effort to revive the state tourism industry which has been adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said through the campaign, the state government is offering a tourism voucher subsidy, amounting to RM2 million, to benefit 10,000 people to revive the industry.
He said a total of 3,000 frontliners in Selangor would be given tourism vouchers worth RM200 each in appreciation of their services in fighting the pandemic, while another 7,000 could be enjoyed by others.
Amirudin said the tourism voucher will be made available through the Lazada e-commerce platform as well as the Touch ‘n Go e-wallet from Jan 8 to 31, and it is only valid for use in Selangor until June 30 next year.
