The government will make arrangements regarding the insurance and monetary sectors for Russian travellers to Ngapali beach, said Union Minister for Hotels and Tourism Dr Htay Aung during the meeting with Ngapali Beach Hotelier Association (Rakhine Zone).
Russian travellers are fond of visiting Ngapali beach for its clear water and clean beach area, he added.
Currently, MAI operates flights and officials will cooperate to facilitate the travel insurance and spending matter of Russian visitors, according to the ministry.
Moreover, the Union minister also received Mr Kosinkov Evgeny, Commercial Director of Russia-based Yi Ling Tourism Co Ltd in Nay Pyi Taw on 2 December. During the meeting, the Union minister pledged to take necessary measures as the bilateral relationship between Myanmar and Russia is moving into higher gear. Mr Kosinkov Evgeny also requested to ease the insurance sector of Myanmar as Russian travellers make tours by buying international insurance. Between April and October, the country sold $3.8 million worth of travel insurance to about 60,000 travellers, according to Myanma Insurance.
The country hosted only about 5,000 Russian travellers per year previously, the digits of the ministry showed. —TWA/KTZ
