Heritage preservation is more than just "keeping the history alive". It also revitalizes local economies and carries out a sense of belonging, pride and identity to the country. Preserving a heritage building contributes to a country's sustainability; improving the energy efficient, transportation management, whilst improving and reusing existing infrastructure.

Yangon Heritage Preservation and Economic Development is a two half-day event, comprised of a technical seminar followed by a closed business segment the following day. The events will serve as an effective channel of business and investment opportunities between Myanmar and foreign countries.

The event will gather influential organisations locally and internationally to share ideas and raise awareness on how to make Myanmar a better place by preserving its historical asset. We invite like-minded professionals to join us and share thoughts and understanding to bring awareness about the impact of each business in the country's economical development.

Key Objectives
