Media Release, 30th March 2015
A promotional road show was organized in Yangong, Myanmar to promote Asia Cold Chain Show with the help of TCEB on 19th March 2015. Over 85 key buyers, associations and local media attended the event from all over Myanmar.
The objective of the event was to invite all key cold chain industry stakeholders to introduce the show as well as invite them to visit Bangkok for ACCS. Myanmar has around 180 cold storages currently and are largely operated by seafood exporters spread all over the country. There are few multi commodity storages coming up in the country and the Union Government has opened PPP (Public Private Partnership) model to encourage more investment in the sector. The existing facilities are also looking for a revamp, both in infrastructure and technology, and are keen to visit ACCS to meet all suppliers at one platform.
“The response we have got from Myanmar market is unprecedented. After my discussion with Mr. Roger Kyaw, Secretary General of Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce & Industry (UMFCCI), I got the clarity on the immediate need of cold chain infrastructure & service providers in their country. There are some challenges in the market including power shortage and low subsidy, but I am sure their visit to ACCS would bring the much needed boost to the sector.”, said Anuj Mathur, Managing Director, Manch Communications Pvt. Ltd.
A travel agent has been appointed by the organizers to form the delegation of member’s inluding Myanmar Fishery Products Processors & Exporters Association, UMFCCI, Myanmar Fisheries Federation, Myanmar Fruit, Flowers and vegetables Producers & Exporters Association to attend the event in July in Bangkok.
