Myanmar and China to Hold Tourism Forum to Boost Travel Industries


A China-Myanmar tourist coopera­tion forum, the first of its kind, will be held in Myanmar’s capi­tal of Nay Pyi Taw this week to deepen bilateral exchanges in the tourism sector.

The March 1st forum, co-hosted by the China National Tourism Admin­istration (CNTA), the My­anmar Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, the Chinese Embassy in Myanmar and the Yunnan provin­cial government, will be attended by a Chinese delegation with over 300 participants.

Under the theme of “Tourism Cooperation – New Impetus for China- Myanmar Comprehen­sive Strategic Cooperative Partnership”, the forum will include roundtable discussions between tour­ist enterprises from China and Myanmar, as well as promotional events for their services.

Aimed at deepening exchanges between the tourist industries of China and Myanmar, the forum will focus on the recent achievements of tour­ist cooperation between the two countries as well as the direction and pri­orities for future coopera­tion.

Both sides have voiced commitment to the facili­tation for border tourists and enhancement of peo­ple-to-people exchanges.

Myanmar’s tourism sector is seen as key to economic growth, while China’s hoards of travel­lers are seen as having a big economic impact in the region.
