THE Mandalay International Trade Fair and Investment Forum 2023, held at the Mandalay Convention
Centre, has attracted numerous visitors, according to reports. The event, organized collaboratively by the Mandalay Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MRCCI) and the Chamber of Commerce of Dehong Prefecture, is slated to run from 9 am to 5 pm on 20-22 December. It serves as a crucial link, connecting Mandalay entrepreneurs with countries in the region. U Win Htay, Chairman of the MRCCI, stated, “Since representatives from ASEAN businesses came and showcased their enterprises, we believe our entrepreneurs will gain foreign connections. We signed MoUs with businesses from Viet Nam and China today.”
The event aims to identify business opportunities in Mandalay and encourage local micro, small, and
medium enterprises through business matching with foreign companies. Dr Tun Tun Aung, Managing Director of the Mandalay Myotha Industrial Park Development Company, said, “We exhibited the investment potential of our industrial park at this event. Positioned at the heart of Myanmar, it is accessible by land, sea, and air routes.” He invited everyone to the forum to witness the innovative ventures awaiting Mandalay’s future.
The forum features three discussions on investment potential in Myanmar: the agriculture and livestock
sector on 20 December, the hotel and tourism sector on 21 December, and the green energy MSME sector on 22 December. Visitors can explore over 240 exhibitions at the event, showcasing items ranging from household goods and medicine to solar and electric vehicles.
