Kota Kinabalu: Basic Mandarin language classes are ongoing for frontliners of the Sandakan and Tawau Airports to ease the difficulties in communication experienced by tourists, particularly those from China.

As discussed in a meeting earlier, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Christina Liew had said the Sabah Tourism Board (STB) was to facilitate and organise basic Mandarin language classes for officers and staff members serving in the Tawau and Sandakan Airports.

She said this move was necessary as a remedial measure, following the incident last year where four Chinese tourists from Shanghai were detained in Tawau for 18 days until December 28 for failing to get their passports stamped on arrival at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) on December 4.
