Our team helps U.S exporters identify potential business partners, obtain valuable market research, and launch their U.S.-made products and services in Burma’s complex market.
In February 2021, the Burmese military (Tatmadaw) deposed the democratically elected civilian government, including President Win Myint and State Counsellor Aung San Suu, Kyi, and seized governing power. The military’s surprise coup has caused enormous damage to the country’s growing economy and social stability. The subsequent nationwide demonstration and the Tatmadaw’s escalating violent responses have negatively impacted many industries, mainly banking, finance, healthcare, financial technology, and logistics.
U.S. companies are strongly advised not to work with military-backed companies and sanctioned entities and conduct proper due diligence checks on local entities. Contact the U.S. Commercial Service for services that can help.
