Community tourism projects struggle to market their products and services, according to speakers at the Communities and Tourism Conference held in Nay Pyi Taw on June 13-14.

The event was organised by Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF), Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business (MCRB) and Myanmar Responsible Tourism Institute (MRTI). Existing community tourism projects, new initiatives, tour companies and professionals took part in the conference. It was also attended by around 15 legislators from areas where communities had expressed an interest in tourism involvement.

New destinations represented at the conference included Myeik archipelago and Lampi, trekking in Danu regions in Shan State, Ngayokekaung, Gwa, tours in the Yangon area, Tamarind Lake Village, and Kantpetlet, according to the press statement from the three organisers.
