Petaling Jaya, 6 December 2021 – Grab Malaysia is introducing the Grab Travel Pass to provide Malaysians with greater convenience and savings on their travel essentials. This is part of Grab’s continuous efforts to support the nation’s economic recovery, especially as travel restrictions ease in the country and Malaysians begin to plan for their year end holidays.
The Malaysian tourism industry has been hit significantly due to the pandemic with a 71% decline in 2020. This has severely impacted the 3.5 million Malaysians employed in the tourism industry which also contributes to over 23% of the Malaysia’s employment rate.
Commenting on the initiative by Grab, Minister Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) shared that the effort is in line with the Ministry’s target to reinvigorate the nation’s economy through the tourism sector.
“We are encouraged by the initiative from Grab which supports our Tourism Recovery Plan, aimed at revitalising the domestic tourism industry. With the wide range of deals from Grab, we hope Malaysians will be attracted to explore other parts of the country and help to revive domestic travels. This will help those who depend on Malaysia’s tourism industry for a living to get back on their feet. It is through initiatives and collaborations such as this that bring us closer to ensuring Malaysia recovers from the difficulties we have faced,” shared Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, Minister of Tourism, Arts And Culture (MOTAC).
“At Grab, our core vision is to come up with new ways to serve the ever-evolving needs of Malaysians. We are excited to work with like-minded partners to enhance the way Malaysians go about planning their travels – giving them a single source to conveniently gain access to deals on a variety of travel essentials. With the support of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts And Culture (MOTAC), we hope this will contribute to the revitalisation of the local tourism industry. We look forward to more collaborations that enhance the convenience available to Malaysians,” said Rashid Shukor, Director, Country Operations, Grab Malaysia
