The Union Minister for Information, Dr. Pe Myint, said lowering the rates and service charges for filming will encourage foreign filmmakers to make movies and documentaries on Myanmar’s culture and natural environment, state media reported.
The Union Minister was speaking during a coordination meeting at his ministry in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday. The meeting was held to discuss lowering the fees foreign filmmakers have to pay for filming in Myanmar, in order to attract more foreign film agencies to the country.
Dr. Pe Myint said encouraging more foreign films and documentaries on Myanmar’s natural scenery and culture will promote the image of the country in the eyes of the world. This, in turn, would promote tourism, he said.
