AHK Business Trip Photovoltaics in Myanmar and 1st Myanmar German Renewable Energies Symposium

From 23 to 27 October 2017, the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar (AHK) organized an AHK Business Trip for German companies which are interested in the Myanmar renewable energy market, particularly photovoltaics.

On 23 October 2017, the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar jointly with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, and with support from the German Development Cooperation, proudly hosted the 1st Myanmar-German Renewable Energies Symposium at Rose Garden Hotel, Yangon. The Symposium was dedicated to Opportunities and Challenges in the solar power industry in Myanmar. The symposium has targeted decision makers from the private and public sector in Myanmar and Germany.

We got lots of nice feedback for the conference and really appreciate this. A big thanks goes out to all participants, speakers, moderators and panelists who contributed to fruitful and exciting discussions! The Myanmar Times covered the conference with an article, including some interesting aspects about financing renewables and the regulatory framework.

On 24 and 25 October 2017, the German companies participating in the business trip have met with selected Myanmar companies to establish business relations in the field of renewable energies. These B2B-meetings were organized by the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar.

From 26 to 28 October 2017, the exhibition Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency took place at Tatmadaw Exhibition Hall, Yangon. In the context of this exhibition, there was a workshop on Cost Reduction Potential of Using Solar Power Supply in Myanmar’s Aquaculture Sector which was organized by GIZ and supported by the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar. Furthermore, the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar has published a factsheet on the topic of Aquaculture and photovoltaics in 2017. 

Several Documents and presentations from the conference are available for download on the AHK webpage. See the right section of this site.
