Burma: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BM2021-0036

Since Burma initiated a series of political and economic reforms in 2011, U.S. agricultural exports have grown over 80-fold, reaching a record $174 million in 2019 and $167 million in 2020 despite the COVID-19 situation. However, political unrest following the coup d'état in February 2021, a severe COVID wave, and logistical challenges have led to disruptions in the trade and banking sectors. This report provides practical tips and information on on-going market trends with the retail food, food service, food processing, and livestock feed sectors and identifies U.S. agricultural product categories with growth potential in the Burmese market.
