Business— Rangoon hotel market to continue record growth

 2014 will be another record year for growth in the Rangoon hotel market, according to property research firm Jones Lang LaSalle. Rangoon’s hoteliers were boosted by a 46 percent increase in international customers in 2013, up on 2012 figures.  Jones Lang LaSalle expects that expansion to Rangoon’s existing airport, as well as the construction of Hanthawaddy International Airport will again lift the figures as the tourism market is lifted in general. In their report, Jones Lang LaSalle noted that 4,518 rooms are expected to enter the market in the next five years.
