In mid 2014, just over one year after EU sanctions against Myanmar were lifted, the first ever British Chamber of Commerce Myanmar was officially launched to support British companies operating in this frontier market.

To date the Chamber has 137 members, over a third of which are British companies. Its website includes information about business opportunities, guidance on doing business in Myanmar and details of events and membership. Find out more at:<><>

The Chamber is supporting the Myanmar Investment Summit in London on 19th February. An influential delegation of Myanmar Ministers and business representatives will discuss opportunities in three main sectors: energy and electric power, vocational training and education as well as financial and professional services. British businesses that are already operating in Myanmar will also share their experiences of navigating the challenges of setting up and succeeding in the country.

Executive Director, Stephanie Ashmore, said: “Myanmar is undergoing rapid reform after years of economic isolation and there are opportunities in almost every sector for those who are willing to take a long-term approach to doing business here”.
