New regional platform to develop tourism companies
Wed, 1 February 2017

The Mekong Business Initiative (MBI) will launch a new platform next month aimed at developing startups in the tourism sector throughout the CLMV region, which includes Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam, a program organiser said yesterday.

MBI, a program launched by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and funded by the Australian government, has developed the Mekong Innovative Startup Tourism (MIST) platform, which will launch this month with an initial budget of $200,000, said Ros Khemara, MBI country manager for Cambodia.
With tourism identified as a key growth sector for CLMV economies, the MIST platform will look to boost private-sector-led innovation.

The MIST project will run for about six months and will seek to create partnerships between local entrepreneurs or startups and experienced innovators in the industry from across the world. The project will culminate in an event in Luang Prabang where selected startups will get the opportunity to pitch their products to potential investors.
