A TWO-DAY ‘Japan-Myanmar Resource, Trade and Investment Expo 2019’, aimed at promoting bilateral investments and attracting businesses opportunities, will take place on 19 and 20 October at the Yangon Convention Center.

According to its organizers, the expo will significantly improve interaction and collaboration among the sponsors, exhibitors, and visitors, and will offer several opportunities for networking, creating new business partnerships, discovering new industry trends, and talent acquisition.

The expo is being organized by Synergy Focus International (SFI), with the support of the Embassy of Japan in Myanmar and the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO). It will showcase investment, culture, education, technology, and job opportunities in Myanmar.

The expo will feature over 150 exhibitors and is expected to attract more than 10,000 visitors. At the expo, young Myanmar people will be able to experience Japanese culture, the work environment in Myanmar, and explore job opportunities with different companies.

“This expo will help explore business prospects and invite Japanese investors to Myanmar. Visitors will surely get to know Japanese culture and business as well,” said U Lin Kyaw Tun, the CEO of SFI.
