ERIA, Myanmar tourism experts hold videoconferencing meeting

THE Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia-ERIA and Myanmar tourism representatives from the government and private sectors held a meeting yesterday through videoconferencing. It aims to get feedback on the current tourism activities in Myanmar as the ERIA has been drawing up the ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement on Tourism Profession[1]als (ASEAN MRA-TP). Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism Dr Htay Aung said Myanmar, along with other ASEAN countries, signed the amendment agreement on the expansion of MICE (meeting, incentive, convention,  exhibition) and event jobs, in  addition to 32 types of hotels  and tourism-related jobs, on  25 April 2022. The Union minister called for a roundtable discussion to provide necessary suggestions for practical support to the ASEAN MRA-TP. Senior Business Advisor to the ERIA said 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the signing of the ASEAN MRA-TP. The discussion aims to identify strengths and weaknesses in the implementation in each member state, develop hotels and tourism human resources with better suggestions, make the skills assessment procedures clearer and easier, and make the migration process for skilled workers more effective. Attendees discussed challenges encountered in the implementation of the MRA-TP in the government and private sector, including awareness-raising activities, suggestions to facilitate the procedures of producing skilled workers at tourism  schools, facilitation of the migration of skilled workers, and  points to emphasize the need for equal opportunities for all  member states. — MNA Source From: The Global New Light of Myanmar
