In 2022, there was a 78 per cent influx of tourists to Myanmar, an increase compared to 2021, Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism Dr Htay Aung said at a meeting of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism on 23 January.
From January to December 2022, the arrival of tourists increased more compared to the last year’s arrivals, mostly from China, Thailand, India, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, the United States, Great Britain and Russia respectively.
In order to increase tourism, the ministry is implementing cooperation between national governments and international organizations such as the World Tourism Federation to gain access to the tourism market.
In addition, international travel exhibitions are often held in foreign countries not only in tourism promotion conferences but also in airlines in these countries. Efforts are being made to promote destinations in Myanmar, the Union minister elaborated.
The Union minister said that he wants hotel and travel associations and industry workers to cooperate as the ministry has drawn up the necessary measures to develop tourism and attract domestic and foreign tourists. — TWA/KZL
