Commerce Ministry to focus on value-adding in textiles for exports

THE Ministry of Commerce will work together with all the stakeholders in the textile industry to penetrate
international markets with value-added products. Under the support of the Ministry of Commerce, Myanmar exports agricultural produce, livestock products, forest products, minerals, fisheries, finished industrial goods and other goods to external markets.

At present, Myanmar consulates and embassies to the relevant countries are striving for the value-added
products supplied by Myanmar’s SMEs that meet international standards and criteria to enter the international markets. Those interested businesspersons can contact the Myanmar Trade Promotion Organization under the Ministry of Commerce and the commercial attaché of Myanmar’s Consulate in Dubai through the Myanmar Garment Manufacturers Association and Myanmar Textile and Garment Manufacturers Association to penetrate the foreign markets with their value-added products from the garment sector.
