The conference started with a special session with some key visionaries in the hospitality sector sharing their perspectives on navigating through Myanmar’s dynamic hospitality market. Participants at the keynote panel were leaders from key FDI hotels in Myanmar. Following the panel discussion, Curtis S. Chin, former US Ambassador to the Asian Development Bank shared his views on the economic sustainability of frontier markets such as Myanmar. After the talk, a panel discussion was held between local hotel owners and international operators to discuss “the pursuit of the ideal operator.”
