Indonesia and Malaysia pledge to collaborate on World Heritage Sites

A short blurb in The Star indicates that Indonesia and Malaysia are planning to collaborate on an integrated tourism package to promote the World Heritage Sites of Penang, Malacca and Borobudur. No further details were mentioned, but the programme looks like it’s aimed at raising the tourist numbers visiting the three sites, rather than plans to help conserve and manage tourists on site.
