Business council hopes Malaysia-Singapore business travel bubble will resume soon

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 24): The Malaysia-Singapore Business Council (MSBC) is hoping the business travel bubble between the two countries can be reinstated as soon as possible to restore vibrant trade and economic activities.

Chairman Datuk Seri Dr Nik Norzrul Thani said the reinstatement would facilitate quarantine-free or reduced quarantine business travel arrangement between the two closely connected neighbours and especially benefit Johor which counted Singapore as one of the state’s top investors.

“We support the call for a ‘universal certification’ to be issued to those who have been vaccinated to ease mobility of people and revive the travel sector within the region,” he said in a statement today.

The statement was issued in conjunction with the 32rd meeting of MSBC Malaysian chapter, which was held virtually yesterday.

Nik Norzrul said MSBC, as the private sector conduit for Malaysian and Singaporean businesses, would facilitate participation of businesses in mega projects — the newly launched cross-border Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System and Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex — and conduct joint programmes for human capital development of skilled workers and young entrepreneurship.

“These projects are major game changers and are of great interest to both countries,” he added.
