via Myanmar Times, 05 April 2019: Following the Cambodia model of cultural heritage and tourism support.

A chinese company is interested in building a theatre in the Bagan heritage zone in Mandalay Region, according to the Department of Archaeology and National Museum in Bagan.

Officials of the Yunnan Culture Industry Investment Holding Co visited Bagan in late March to discuss constructing and opening a theatre. Their objective is to cooperate with resident artists, including ethnic people, to enhance the culture and heritage of Bagan, said U Aung Aung Kyaw, director of the department.

“They came here to make a preliminary study. Our rules, regulations, procedures and the nature of our cultural heritage were explained to them. In Bagan, after sight-seeing in the daytime, there is nothing to do at night, so from a tourism point of view, there might be a need for such a theatre. There are both good and bad points about the idea,” he said.
