Developing Myanmar tourism with 120 local stakeholders

Developing Myanmar tourism with 120 local stakeholders means to acknowledge military presence and governmental power in a process of change.
At the beautiful “Royal Nadi Resort” in Nyaung Shwe close to Inle Lake, nobody talks about the “Blue Lake” whose colors seem to have turned muddy brown. Environmental degradation confirms the effects of human exploitation and commercial impact. International development efforts not yet grasp sustainable methods for impact in favour of ‘blue sky’ visions. Yet, it is not yet too late to move towards joint leadership.
