Government, local suppliers and manufacturers alike laud the staging of Manufacturing Myanmar as an indication the manufacturing industry in Myanmar is headed for an era of industrial transformation.

"Ensuring development, attractiveness and competitiveness of the manufacturing industry sits high on the government's list of priorities. Having taken steps to implement reform strategies and invest in infrastructure to make Myanmar a favourable location for international manufactures as well as to create a conducive business climate for local production to flourish, the Ministry of Industry welcomes Manufacturing Myanmar as it further value adds to our efforts," says His Excellency U Maung Myint, Union Minister, Ministry of Industry.

"Learning from international best practices is one way to progress and Manufacturing Myanmar presents a universal benchmark for manufacturing, operational and service excellence, factors which are critical to setting the stage for Myanmar's manufacturing sectors. With the knowledge base and exposure to new technology Manufacturing Myanmar can bring on board, I am confident that our manufacturing sector will continue its growth and contribute heartily to the economy," he adds.

Royal Marine Group, one of Myanmar's leading engineering service providers for the marine and oil and gas sector will be visiting Manufacturing Myanmar 2014. Mr. Ye' Wint Kyaw, Sales Engineer of Royal Marine Group says, "The exhibit profile of this event really caught our eye, design soft wares, tools, machinery and welding equipment, almost everything is relevant to our business. We are looking forward to be able to meet the regular suppliers for our projects as well as products or technology which will be useful to us. I hope Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 can bring new technologies to inspire, new opportunities to be taken and open doors for the local manufacturing industry to expand internationally."

Manufacturing Myanmar is a good platform to introduce good working systems to improve the productivity of Myanmar's industries. In time, we will begin to see more semi and fully automated production lines. With the increase use of technology also fetches the need for manpower with the correct technical capabilities, as such, we also have set up a new company providing training courses for local engineers and technicians."

We believe that Manufacturing Myanmar is a match-up between user and supplier for both service and goods. From this event, the local manufacturing industry will be able to source for what it needs and learn from what is available abroad in order to satisfy the needs of the domestic consumers."

In conclusion, Ms. Lindy Wee, Deputy Chief Executive of organiser Singapore Exhibition Services says, "Manufacturing Myanmar will present many viable options for local businesses looking to upgrade existing operations and processes, as well as expand capabilities through investment in technology.
