The impact of covid-19 on Malaysia tourism industry supply chain. International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences, 11 (16). pp. 27-41. ISSN 2222-6990 (2021)


This research addresses the effect of COVID-19 on the tourism industry in general and on Malaysia in particular. This research explores the impact that the COVID-19 crisis has had on the tourism and tourism industry and hospitality services trends. To achieve the purpose of this research, first, the article explores the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the impacts of the tourism industry, behaviours, and experiences for societal inclusion, together with international tourism disruption caused by Covid-19. The article discusses the significant impacts and experiences of COVID-19 on selected tourism supply chain members in Malaysia. Then, this paper provides a quick assessment of the reported procedures of the three major tourism stakeholders in Malaysian tourism (i.e., tourism demand, supply, government, and policymakers). This article finally draws on observation and reflections about the evolution of social inclusion through new forms of creative and niche tourism, accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis. For better or worse, an overview of the COVID-19 tourism impacts and implications thus suggests mitigation strategies for tourism research. Despite the industry’s resilience in response to previous crises, the sheer depth and breadth of COVID-19– related impacts on tourism and the economy means a quick recovery is unlikely.
