Several MPs have been quizzing Yen Yen on the details of her trips, particularly to New Zealand and Australia which had cost RM245,000. She hand-delivered her written reply in parliament, accounting for all her trips to date this year. This revealed that she had attended six international forums and seven 'missions' across the globe. She used at the high cost of RM491, 987 to a seven-day mission to Europe from May 25-31, in fact, with a similar trip to Europe covering four cities over 10 days which only cost about RM300, 000 according to a source.
I hope tourism ministry carefully handle this big sum of money, they should upgrade the tourism related infrastructures and sites instead of wasteful overseas trips. How can we know conclude that the increase in the tourism ranking is the result to Yen Yen's travels and not due to other factors? The government cutting cost on education and several other important sectors saying that they have no money and people’s subsidies have to be withdrawn, so when the people are suffering, the government have not shown any sign of saving people’s money. Sigh! This is the government that you have voted for?
