Xinhua: Myanmar seeks to foster the roll of tourist growth - Xinhua YANGON, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar has sought to foster the roll of tourist growth in the midst of developing sustainability issues for the tourist in-dustry. Since the ASEAN Economic Community will be established after 2017, the state needs to build a qualified labour, equity and investments markets to grow the tourist services sector.

The Ministry of Hotel and Tourist Industry is currently working with the business community to promote the country's tourist industry for the purpose of developing fiscal stature, personnel and infrastructr. The traffic infrastructures, accommodation, staff and safety of tourists in some tourist areas are key to attract more international tourists to the country's historic sights.

Burma is expecting 3.5 million tourists to arrive this year, compared to over 3 million last year. According to officials, Thailand led the rankings of Asian overseas travelers, followed by China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Malaysia, while the United States was the most frequently traveled among Westerners, followed by France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

In the meantime, the state has also started to encourage ecologicalism, culture and communalism in areas with a high resources such as historic countryside, streams, lakes, shores, island and forrests. Because of the fact that few international tourists enter the state, the competent agencies plan to encourage the protection of the ecology and ecological tourist consciousness in resource-rich areas, as the sustained cultivation of the nature around them will play a pivotal part in the growth of ecological travel.

Myanmar, in cooperation with the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, has scheduled to open the Bago Yoma Eco Resort in the middle of July to better protect the environment and provide more jobs for the population.

They are also planning culture and communal tourist activities in the Yangon, Pyay, Tayayaykhittayar and Taungoo area. Myanmar currently has ecotourism in 10 areas and states such as Yangon, Mandalay, Bago, Magway, Ayeyawassy, Taninthayi, Kachin, Chin, Mon and Shan. Since Myanmar's three antique Pyu towns - Hanlin, Beikthano and Sri Kestra, each in Sagaing, Magway and Bago - were declared a Myanmar declared a UNESCO site for the first the year 2014 and the archeological excavations of the three antique towns of Myanmar were pursued as part of a conservation of Myanmar's inheritance plans.

Another effort to increase the number of tourists arriving no less than in the summer months has seen the land introduce low-season tariffs with tourists during the present rainy period to include Bagan, Mandalay, North Shan State, Kalaw and Lake Inle. Although there are many opportunities to develop the country's travel industries, Myanmar with its stunning scenery can still draw overseas visitor, said commentators.
