China-Myanmar tourism cooperationThe first of its kind China-Myanmar tourism cooperation forum kicked off in Myanmar’s capital of Nay Pyi Taw today, China’s Xinhua news agency reported.

U Ohn Maung, Myanmar’s Minister of Hotels and Tourism, said the forum is aimed at enhancing the bilateral cooperation in tourist industry. He was speaking at the opening ceremony held in Nay Pyi Taw.


Noting that since Myanmar and China, neighbours sharing a common boundary, initiated a tourist cooperation deal in 2000, U Ohn Maung said the two countries have mutually benefited from the cooperation, thanks to the existing friendly relations and close cooperation in recent years.


The forum is co-organised by China National Tourism Administration (CNTA), Myanmar Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, the Chinese Embassy to Myanmar and
China’s Yunnan provincial government.


Having signed a series of tourist cooperation accords since June 2001, Myanmar has become an organized tourist destination of Chinese nationals, Du Jiang, CNTA vice chairman, recalled adding that China now is Myanmar’s second biggest source of incoming tourists.
