Industrial Development

In Myanmar, the industrial sector is needed for GDP growth as one of the main strategies of developing the country’s economy. It also effectively utilizes land, forest, fisheries and natural resources.

To develop the industrial sector, many fundamental changes are planned, such as to encourage the competitiveness, to raise the support of the industrial cluster group, to invest and promote the human resources development, to promote the improvement of industrial zones based on regulations and support from the Industrial Development Bank, to plan for reducing, exempting and relieving commercial tax and custom duty, to motivate the exports of products, than for  import substitution so as to have a share of the international markets.
