The plan bodes well for group tour operators but could cause hotel operators to up their game, even as it potentially boosts the MICE sector. Meanwhile, in Malaysia big things are afoot, with authorities reportedly discussing a second casino license for Forest City, with talks underway with Berjaya and Genting.
