  Problem statement: Given the high contribution of tourism industry in the Malaysian economy, Malaysia has a vast view to increase its market share of the international tourist arrivals in the Asia Pacific region. Therefore, this study attempts to investigate the long run and short run demand for tourism from top ten markets (country). Approach: To accomplish this objective the ARDL bound test approach to cointegration was carried out for quarterly time series data from 1998:Q1 to 2007: Q3. A three-stage procedure followed to test the direction of causality. In the first stage the order of integration was tested using the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) and Phillips Perron (PP) unit root tests. The second stage involved testing for the existence of a long-run equilibrium relationship between arrivals, income, tourism price, tourism substitute price and travel cost. The third stage involved constructing standard Granger-type causality tests augmented with a lagged error-correction term where the series were cointegrated. Results: The result of ADF and PP unit root tests confirmed that all variables were stationary at first difference. In addition the results indicated that a long run relationship and between variables. Conclusion: The results indicated that tourists from these ten countries seem to be highly sensitive to the price and the alternative destinations are complementary to Malaysia. In addition the results showed that the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS, 2003) had a negative affects significantly affected Malaysia’s tourism demand.

  Agricultural sector is one of the sensitive areas that would be affected by the changes in key climatic elements. This study assesses the possible impact of climate change on the Malaysian rice production. The study employed DSSAT Crop Simulation Model to predict the rice yields in the eight granary areas of Peninsular Malaysia until 2030, based on projected weather data and current management practices. Increase in temperature and variations in rainfall pattern over the growing period were found to affect the rice yield. The results indicated that rice yield, during 2013 to 2030, compared to the base values are expected to decrease by12.2, 13.6, 8.7, 8.4, 15.2, 16.8, 11.4 and 18.6% for the main season and 45.5, 19.4, 33.9, 36.3, 34.5, 47.8, 21.8 and 7.5% for the off season for MADA, KADA, Kerian, BLS, Pulau Pinang, Seberang Perak, Ketara and Kemasin, respectively. These results showed that rice yield would be more negatively affected by the climate change during off season rather than main season.
