Myanmar's Ministry of Hotels and Tourism has announced plans to establish Nay Pyi Taw as a MICE destination, having established a central organising office in the capital city as a "one-stop shop" for organising MICE events.

Also, transport is very good and there is no air pollution,” Khin Than Win, director of tourism promotion and international relations department under the ministry told TTGmice e-Weekly.
Major MICE centres in Nay Pyi Taw include Myanmar International Convention Centres 1 and 2, and the Kempinski Hotel Nay Pyi Taw.
The city had previously hosted the ASEAN Tourism Forum, ASEAN Summit and World Economic Forum on East Asia.
Upcoming events include the International Ecotourism Conference in May, Myanmar Hospitality and Tourism Conference in June and a high-profile golf tournament in November.
