Thai-American Business (T-AB) Magazine - - Events Roundup -

From Oc­to­ber 13 to 15, The Amer­i­can Cham­ber of Com­merce in Myan­mar ( AMCHAM Myan­mar) hosted a meeting of the Asi­aPa­cific Coun­cil of Amer­i­can Cham­bers ( APCAC).

APCAC is an as­so­ci­a­tion of 29 Cham­bers of Com­merce rep­re­sent­ing 22 economies through­out Asia- Pa­cific with over 15,000 com­pa­nies who em­ploy 10 mil­lion work­ers and in­vest USD 400 bil­lion an­nu­ally in the re­gion.

Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors of 12 Am­chams from the Asia- Pa­cific gath­ered in Yan­gon to ex­change best prac­tices and lessons learned from their re­spec­tive cham­bers and dis­cuss in­no­va­tive ways to pro­mote trade and in­vest­ment in the re­gion.

The del­e­ga­tion at­tended a cock­tail re­cep­tion with U. S. Am­bas­sador to Myan­mar, Scot Mar­ciel, hosted by U. S. Em­bassy’s Deputy Chief of Mis­sion Kris­ten Bauer.

Am­bas­sador Mar­ciel said that fol­low­ing the re­cent sus­pen­sion of Burma- spe­cific sanc­tions by the U. S. Myan­mar is even more open to busi­ness and en­cour­aged the at­ten­dees to bring busi­ness del­e­ga­tions and po­ten­tial in­vestors to Myan­mar. He echoed a state­ment made by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi dur­ing her visit to the U. S. that businesses that do well are wel­come to Myan­mar as they would also do good for the whole so­ci­ety.

The ex­ec­u­tives also had a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence Myan­mar’s sights and cul­ture with a sight­see­ing trip to Bago, river cruise, and a guided tour of Yan­gon.
