Many countries, including Malaysia, have been gearing up for the return of tourists from China as their President Xi Jinping has scrapped their 3-year long Covid-19 restrictions despite the increasing number of cases there.

Some countries from Britain and the United States to Japan and Italy have since introduced compulsory pre-flight Covid-19 tests and testing upon arrival for tourists coming in from China, Morocco has banned their entry as a protection measure.

Considering this, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Datuk Tiong King Sing, is being condemned for handing out goodie bags to Chinese tourists arriving in Malaysia, for Chinese New Year, as showcased in a video by BERNAMA TV.

“They told us to do all kinds of things, make all kinds of sacrifices. The people have to starve themselves while the Ministers’ stomachs were full. Tourists get gifts while the people have to bear the Ministers’ disasters.”
