Mandalay is the second largest city in Myanmar (after Yangon) and like Yangon is going through unprecedented economic growth. Mandalay boasts a central geographic location, not only is it the centre of Myanmar’s highway and road network but also an economic corridor between China and India with major highways running to both. However, the road infrastructure needs work. This in itself creates a multitude of opportunities, especially for engineering professionals.
There is an existing industrial zone located in Mandalay, with over 1100 factories established boasting both modern and traditional industries with textiles and agriculture at the forefront: whilst this provides many opportunities for unskilled workers, as international trade increases and businesses expand (especially with the new road system) there is going to be more sales and business development opportunities as Myanmar products are becoming more accessible.
Like the highways these functions are connected in propelling Myanmar’s growth forward.
Not to mention Mandalay’s burgeoning tourism industry. Mandalay, like Yangon boasts an international airport, as well as the highways, train network and waterway access, meaning that it is a stop on any tourist’s itinerary. As with the rest of the country there is not a supply to meet the demand, so many new hotels are being built to accommodate these eager tourists which is creating even more opportunities. A new hotel is one thing, but to attract and retain the best staff requires an excellent Human Resources department.
Mandalay has a very rich history and is close to many tourist destinations. There are the famous ones we already know about (such as Bagan and Inles Lake) but as the country opens up further there will be many other gems which will need marketing to help people become aware of their existence.
Whilst the health care in Myanmar is not optimum, Mandalay is the main medical centre after Yangon, and the same goes for education. As Myanmar continues to economically grow, these are also areas offering job opportunities.
Mandalay has job opportunities across many industries, especially transport, agriculture, textiles and tourism from both skilled and unskilled labour perspectives.
Using tourism as an example, as the tourism sector expands, there is a requirement not only for front of house workers such as waiters, receptionists, executive chefs, tour guides, and drivers, supervisors and managers at various levels. Then there are the wheels behind the scenes such as accounting and finance assure the incoming and outgoing cash flow.
Naturally these requirements for both skilled workers are not just inherent to the tourism industry. As international companies set up both in the city itself and the industrial zone there is a need for professionals in these areas to not just assist in building bridges, but also bridging cultural gaps. Thus professionals with a command on both the Burmese and English languages are in high demand.
