Global countries are striving for the resumption of tourism industries as infection of Covid-19 declines. As the infection rate of the pandemic declines to less than 1 per cent for many days, it is time for Myanmar to accelerate the implementation of the tourism sector under the restrictions of Covid-19 issued by the Ministry of Health.
The tourism industry creates more than 320 million employments across the world and supports 10 per cent of the world’s GDP, according to the records of the World Tourism Organization. As the tourism service contributes much to the development of micro, small and medium-scale enterprises, more than 200 countries including Myanmar are trying to resume operations of tourism industries.
Being an agro-based country, Myanmar should seek new advice and ways for widely designating agri-based tourism, farming-based tourism and educational tourism like the Mount Popa Geo-tourism service. Moreover, it is necessary to shape the potential towns and villages as tourism cities and villages in related regions and states.
As of this open season, the tourism industry has resumed as usual in Myanmar. Hence, the countries with good relations with Myanmar and neighbouring countries will initially be targeted as the tourism market of Myanmar. That is why tourism services are trying hard to introduce Myanmar’s significant tourism products and services to the global tourism arena through the digital platform.
At the same time, tourist attractions and services of Myanmar must be introduced through Myanmar embassies to relevant global countries for international tourists to pay visits to Myanmar in order to improve the tourism industry.
Actually, the tourism industry is not designed to give services to customers by producers similar to that of other businesses but consumers reach the producers for enjoying the services. As such, producers of traditional products and handicrafts in regions and states can take advantage of introducing these products and services to customers. Attracting tourists and travellers with the use of domestic products can create job opportunities in relevant areas.
Primarily, tourism services must give good services to customers with convenience in all aspects. Hence, all service providers of the tourism industry must assist with the basic needs of local and international travellers along their trips starting from their arrival to their departure to improve Myanmar’s tourism industry.
Micro, small and medium-scale enterprises and various tourism services are relying on each other. Both businesses can contribute much to the socioeconomic status of the people and the nation.
