the country is unstable in some areas, it is fully secured in significant destinations. It has been prepared in the tourism industry with new locations and complete health services for more than two years, Union Minister for Information U Maung Maung Ohn elaborated during the virtual interview with China Central Television (CCTV) news agency.
In his reply, the Union Minister said the domestic tourism industry was reopened as the first phase, and international tourism was resumed starting on 17 April 2022 following COVID-19 health rules. As you know, the economic status has declined worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and tourism is one of the most affected sectors.
The tourism industry earns foreign income for the country, and it is also a non-smoke industry, especially it creates various job opportunities for the youths and women. The COVID-19 disease is significantly controlled, and it has already made arrangements by cooperating with the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism and the ministries concerned. Currently, the preparations are being completed for the international tourists.
Moreover, the tourism industry plays a vital role for the country, and it also profoundly invites all the countries and the neighbouring country, China. Since the beginning, the arrangements are also made to ensure proper tours by discussing with the consulate general in Mandalay.
Myanmar hosted more than 3.5 million tourists in 2019 (January to October), while there were only more than 800,000 in 2020 (January to October), and it saw a 75 per cent drop in tourist arrivals compared to the previous year, according to the data of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism released in November 2020. — Htun Htun/GNLM
