Seek opportunities to resume varieties of tourism services

Articles

The tourism industry is a bridge connecting the peoples from various countries through travelling to destinations which showcase the attractive natural and manmade beauties.
The tourism industry which is one of the main pillars to meet the aims of poverty alleviation, gender discrimination, creation of good employments, and economic development involved in the sustainable development goals of the United Nations is facing unsuccessfulness and loss.
Hence, international and local organizations as well as global countries including the United Nations World Tourism Organization are making strenuous efforts for the resumption of the tourism industry. In Myanmar, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism cooperates with relevant ministries and private organizations in the soonest resumption of tourism services by creating new destinations and ancient cultural sites.

Service providers need to focus on the implementation of community-based tourism in line with the health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health in order to expose the traditional culture of ethnic people, reducing the poverty of rural people and conserving the natural environment.

As building trust among the local and international travellers is important for the resumption of the tourism services, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism organizes the training courses on the prevention of COVID-19 to service providers in the tourism sector while implementing the work process to inspect hotels, lodges, restaurants, tourism companies, tour guides, souvenir shops and transport services whether they meet the standards or not for the prevention of COVID-19 and directives and identifying them at local, national and international levels with the issuance of the certificate of Health and Safety Protocol.
COVID-19 pandemic has changed the options of tourists to choose better, specific and healthy destinations. Those tourists are much interested in paying free visits to the less populous areas such as Nature-Based Tourism, Ecotourism, Agro-tourism, Marine Tourism and Rural Tourism rather than the populous urban areas.
Myanmar is inhabited by 135 ethnic nationals. Each ethnic national possesses very interesting diverse items such as culture and customs, faiths, traditional festivals and domestic products as well as foods. Service providers need to focus on the implementation of community-based tourism in line with the health guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health in order to expose the traditional culture of ethnic people, reducing the poverty of rural people and conserving the natural environment.
It is important that people from various arenas have to secure the proportional benefits obtained from the tourism industry. The tourism industry can create job opportunities for labourers having different skills and experiences with more social consolidation.
