Malaysia and Ukraine - great touristic potential for both countries

Mr. H.E. Chuah Teong Ban, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Malaysia to Ukraine met Mrs. Lyudmyla Slobodyanyuk, General Director of New Land Group, to discuss the possibilities of the development of tourism potential between Malaysia and Ukraine. The great potential of both countries was discussed, but still a lot of joint efforts should be done to promote the destinations and attractions.

We would like to mentioned that, every year the role of the tourism which is a promising segment of the Ukrainian-Malaysian bilateral relations in enhancing human contacts is increasing. About 5.500 of the Ukrainian tourists visited Malaysia last year. Meanwhile, Ukraine as an attractive tourist European country has also a lot to offer the Malaysian tourists - ski resorts, medical tourism and some unique resorts that for the second decade have been attracting local tourists.

In order to enhance relations in the tourism sector New Land Group as incoming Travel Management Company is looking for a partnership in Malaysia to open up Ukraine as a destination for Malaysian tourists, as well as MICE and educational possibilities in Ukraine. However, the requirement of the Ukrainian side to have an entrance visa is still the most serious obstacle for tourism development between two countries. As the results of the negotiations was agreed that New Land Group will be supported in an establishment the reliable partnership on Malaysian market and the Malaysian partners will be provided with full information of all travel possibilities to Ukraine. Both sides will cooperate organizing bilateral visits and working under visas regimes facilitations as well as under acquisition of the Ukrainian and Malaysian citizens about the Ukraine and Malaysia destinations attractiveness.

New Land Group highly appreciates Mr. Ambassador for his personal and professional efforts in strengthening the relationships between two countries and admires of the willing to cooperate.

In the end of the meeting the book “Malaysia by the eyes of the Ukrainian” was signed and presented by Mr. Ambassador to the team of New Land Group with the wish Salamat Datang! Welcome Malaysia!

We strongly believe that such dedicated job from both sides will allow us to be proud of Ukrainian-Malaysian cooperation within nearest future.
