Chinese mega-incentive an indicator of returning confidence
Perfect China will send a total of 4,000 of its high-performing delegates to Malaysia for an incentive-cum-conference trip next month.
The leading health and personal care direct selling company’s delegates will visit Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Penang between August 2 and 10, said Mint Leong, director of Sunflower Holidays, which is the appointed local destination management company for the event.
She said: “This group of Chinese arrivals is very important for Malaysia as it shows that the Chinese corporate sector is supporting Malaysia in light of the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on March 8, which was on its way to Beijing with 153 Chinese nationals on board.
“Perfect China has not given up on Malaysia. More than half of the delegates have booked seats on Malaysia Airlines. We hope their decision to choose Malaysia will give confidence to other business and leisure travellers from China to do the same,” Leong added.
Sunflower Holidays also handles leisure group tours from China and saw a 90 per cent drop from this market since April due to the MH370 incident.
Leong said: “At this point of time, we cannot tell what impact the MH17 air disaster will have on China. We thought we would see the market recover in October but now we are not sure.”
