The Myanmar Information Management Unit
The Myanmar Information Management Unit / MIMU is a service to the UN Country Team and Humanitarian Country Team, under the management of the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator.
During the last two years, the liberalisation of its economic and political systems has directly led to a substantial growth in international tourist arrivals in Myanmar.
The overall objective of project MYA/001 is to achieve the goal of the Myanmar Tourism Master Plan 2013-2020, i.e. to maximise hospitality and tourism contribution to national employment and income generation.
Its specific objective is to build human resources capacity and promote service quality in the tourism sector in line with orientations of the strategic programme II of the Myanmar Tourism Master Plan.
Project MYA/001 has three results: (i) the regulatory environment and organisational capacities of the main institutional actors are strengthened, (ii) the operational capacity of existing and new education and training providers is strengthened and (iii) the skills of the existing tourism workforce are upgraded.
