He said he believes that there will be opportunities for more assertive communication and business connectivity between the partner business communities.
He urged to share experiences with the digital economy and the more innovative and competitive development models for the new normal in the current context of the COVID-19 crisis when digital technology is increasingly being used in the commercial sectors.
He continued there is a need to increase the cooperation for a stronger economic recovery and to streamline production processes with modern digital technologies by enhancing the involvement of the private sector especially in developing countries and emerging markets that are facing more challenges. He added Myanmar is also developing the Myanmar Economic Recovery and Reform Plan (MERRP) in conjunction with the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP) to respond to the impact of COVID-19 and to revitalize the Myanmar economy in the long run.
