The way forward

U Ohn Maung

Minister of Hotels and Tourism,Myanmar

“The Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and private sector associations have been making all-out efforts for the development of Myanmar’s tourism industry. We have been taking part in international and regional tourism shows, hosting travel exhibitions, cooperating with international bodies, assigning tourism ambassadors, distributing leaflets and promotional videos, arranging familiarization trips for well-known international media group, and developing digital marketing systems for tourism sector development.

I know the importance of having communities’ involvement in our tourism efforts. So, I encourage the private sector, regional and state governments, and local communities to embrace and develop Community based Tourism.

We will carry on our endeavour and, in particular, in 2020 will develop our tourism Master Plan 2020-2030, make visa relaxations to some European countries that are friendly with us, create more training programmes for capacity building, and promote sports and gastronomy tourism for new markets.

Sustainablity is key to the future of tourism in Myanmar.”
