The newly formed Myanmar Business Forum aims to provide a space for local entrepreneurs to meet and discuss business issues with the president.
The Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI) said that the forum, formed by private entrepreneurs and government bodies, will allow local traders to present reports and will promote Myanmar’s private sector.
“The government will create the forum to discuss the challenges in various economic sectors and fulfil the needs of business people while implementing the business reforms,” said Win Aung, chairman of the UMFCCI.
A meeting to form a task force for Myanmar Business Forum was held on Saturday. Win Aung added that the forum will aim to meet with the president every 6 months to make sure the adequate government departments are supporting businesses.
“We wanted to say if the respective departments will not implement the matters that should be done, we are going to report to the president once every six months. That’s why; the governmental departments need to carry out the tasks timely by following the rules and regulations,” said Win Aung.
