Tourism and Culture Minister Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz has advised guesthouse operators to comply the safety rules set by the local authority.
Nazri wants the guesthouse operators to find a way to compromise with the Penang Island City Council.
He added the guest house operators should follow the rules for their guests safety.
Commercial hotels have complied with the requirements and it’s important for other smaller players to follow the rules, Nazri told the newsmen after launching World Tourism Conference 2016 held at the Eastern and Oriental (E&O) Hotel today morning.
Earlier a group of 50 protestors gathered in front of E&O hotel to show their dissatisfaction over the new laws imposed by the City council.
