High Time to Open International Borders?

Dr Jayant Menon, Visiting Senior Fellow, ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute

High Time to Open International Borders?

Interstate borders have been open for a week now - but international travel is still tightly controlled, with Malaysians able to travel overseas, but foreign tourists not allowed to enter. An opinion piece by Dr Jayant Menon argues that we should just open our borders fully. We speak with him to find out more.

*CORRECTION: As of 18 October, the quarantine period for travellers returning to Malaysia has been reduced to 7 days, and not 14 days as mentioned in the podcast. We regret this error.
