Malaysia is welcoming business travellers to Malaysia while keeping everyone safe by introducing a Business Travellers Centre (BTC) at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
The BTC, launched yesterday by the Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry, Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, functions to facilitate the entry of foreign business travellers into Malaysia.
Located at Gate C36, Satellite Terminal, KLIA the BTC is now open for short term foreign business travellers planning to carry out their business tasks in the country.
The launching of the BTC also marks a major milestone of the government’s unwavering mission to revive the economy and to pave the way for economic rebound in 2021.
According to him, despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, this year will be a promising year for the Malaysian economy as the government is committed to easing business operations for both local and foreign businesses alike.
“Malaysia has pro-business and pragmatic policies that support the investment climate in the country. Our supportive business ecosystem is in fact a catalyst to attract investors not only to conduct new business activities, but to also expand and diversify their existing operations here.
“The BTC is reflective of our responsiveness to the current situation and in finding progressive solutions to ensure we can achieve a balance in protecting lives and livelihoods,” he said.
The BTC is one of the key components of the One Stop Centre (OSC) initiative by the Malaysian Government to ease the movement of Business Travellers, from entry to exit point.
The Centre assumes a vital role in ensuring that Malaysia remains an attractive investment destination for foreign businesses.
