PETALING JAYA, MALAYSIA: Local tour guides have objected to Tourism Ministry's proposal to allow foreign tour guides to work in Malaysia.

Representatives from 12 tour guide associations nationwide expressed their dissatisfaction during a tour guide council meeting in Malacca on Saturday.

Langkawi Tourist Guides Asso­ciation chairman A. Gunasagaran said if foreign tour guides were allowed to work here, it should be on condition that they attend familiarisation courses,

"They must also register themselves as members of tourist associations here,'' he said.
