The Club has done a few trips to Myanmar, in particular to its ccommercial capital Yangon. Today, Singaporeans do not need a visa to enter Myanmar.
Many Singaporeans live in Yangon; they are either doing their own businesses or working for large companies. As Myanmar expands and opens itself to the world, many seek opportunities in a country that was once cut off from the outside world. ATMs and credit cards have since popped up in most parts of Yangon. There are more entertainment spots. More and more cars are being imported. International schools, with one being run by a Singapore have established themselves well. Many restaurants chains which you are familiar with in Singapore and the region are doing well, with a growing working class. Myanmar has a sizeable rich and well to do consumers.
The Singapore name is well established and sort after in Myanmar. Many Singaporeans have done well in various positions and businesses in the country. SHC members have asked to do another trip to Yangon as a club. This time, we shall do a trip but it wont be a tourist trip. You can easily plan a trip with a travel agent. I have allocated two days 20 and 21 April 2017 to meet resident Singaporeans and families who have been residing in Myanmar for many years. We will likely have lunch, dinner or breakfast. Yu can mingle with them, and find out more about living in Myanmar, their experience and the opportunities in this up and coming nation.
To keep simple, all participants book and pay their own airfares, and book their own hotels. You may go earlier and you may leave later, but the dates are 20 and 21 Apr 2017. You organise your own airport transfers.
Resident Singaporeans will be invited, and we will pay for their meals. Cost likely to be double or in some cases, triple our share.
