The initiative is a joint collaboration with Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei Catering, Freme Travel Service, Pan Bright Travel Service and Straits Central Agencies (SCA).

Director of Tourism Malaysia Brunei Hj Ibrahim Seddiqi Talib said that the agency has been promoting MYES packages since 2010 due to Bruneian tourists’ interest in shopping while in Malaysia.
