Chinese textile & apparel delegation visits Myanmar

Mar '14
A delegation of the Chinese textile and garment businesses visited Myanmar earlier this month to study and research the transfer of China’s industrial transfer to Myanmar.
 
The 30-member Chinese delegation comprised both entrepreneurs and senior executives from large and medium textile and garment enterprises, including companies engaged in men’s formal wear, womenswear, knitwear, and textile and knitting machinery.
 
During the visit, the Chinese team met Myint Soe and Kyaw Win, president and secretary general, respectively, and other members of the Myanmar Garment Manufacturers’ Association (MGMA).
 
Mr. Myint Soe said that MGMA, founded in 2002, has 304 member companies, mostly enterprises from Hong Kong, Korea and Japan.
 
He said the Association can assist the Chinese enterprises in applying for licenses and for providing staff training and other services.
 
According to him, the Myanmar garment industry is still in its formative years. The Myanmar garment enterprises lack markets and advanced technologies, and hope to cooperate with their Chinese counterparts for complementary advantages and common development, he said.
 
The Chinese delegation also visited Myanmar’s Ministry of Industries, the Commercial Office of the Chinese Embassy in Myanmar, and two local clothing enterprises to understand the foreign investment policy environment in the country.
 
After the US and the EU lifted sanctions on Myanmar (earlier Burma), the country’s garment exports grew rapidly. From January to October 2013, the exports of apparel from Myanmar increased by 109 percent year-on-year.
