18 Aug Multilateral Trade Visit (MTV)
The ASOCIO Multilateral Trade Visit (MTV) was held in Mandalay, Myanmar from March 6 – 9, 2019. This event was hosted by The Myanmar Computer Industry Association (MCIA) and the main objective of this event is to encourage and promote greater cross-border trade and partnership opportunities amongst the 24 economies in Asian and Oceanian region. ASOCIO also took the opportunity to have a half day business planning session in Mandalay.
This MTV was a great success with more than 25 delegates from Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia and Myanmar. His Excellency U Ye Lwin (Mayor of Mandalay) and senior executives (former chairman and presidents) from MCIA were on hand to grace the opening ceremony of the Smart City Conference including the Gala dinner.
ASOCIO 2-Year Business Plan deliberation sessions were held in Mandalay Myanmar on 7th March. This session chartered the roadmap over the next 21 months for the regional association with some immediate initiatives in furthering the objectives of cross border trades, collaborations and exchange of insights.
Myanmar in particular Mandalay certainly has great opportunities especially in the ICT industries; and ASOCIO look forward to more collaboration with Myanmar in future activities. ASOCIO once again congratulate and thank MCIA for hosting such a successful event.
