Dato’ Dr. Ammar Abd Ghapar, Senior Director, Domestic & Events Division, Tourism Malaysia said that in the past two years of their collaboration, ShopBack has been rolling out a Chief Travel Officer video series to highlight the beauty of our country to entice the public. This year, Tourism Malaysia will be expanding its efforts towards supporting ShopBack’s Online Travel Fair in collaboration with partner merchants like Agoda, Booking.com, Expedia, Malaysian Airlines, KLOOK, Traveloka, and many others.
