By using wavelet transform context structures and the annual data during the period of 1997–2016 . The finding shows that the relationship is generally positive but changes over time, displaying low- to high-frequency cycles . Moreover, the timing and frequency change when GEPU co-moves with tourism . It can be recommended that the government maintain the national security and peace protocols.
