Malaysia Outbound - November 2015

“Malaysian outbound travellers are value-seekers; they are always on the lookout for deals. They do not travel as extensively as their richer Singaporean neighbours, but this is a market with a lot of room for growth. Malaysia is being steered to become a high-income economy, and the number of middle-class consumers is forecast to increase, underscoring the immense potential this emerging market has.”
