As compared to 102 billion ringgit in 2019, the impact of the pandemic was reflected on the tourism’s direct gross domestic product, which dropped by 72 per cent to 28.5 billion ringgit.


Also, DOSM data showed that the tourism industry had generated 199.4 billion ringgit of gross value added of tourism industry in 2020 by contributing 14.1 per cent to Malaysia’s GDP.
