The Yangon Region Investment Committee (YRIC) endorsed 45 domestic and foreign enterprises in the past eight months (January-August) and the manufacturing sector topped the investment lineups, U Myo Khaing Oo, director of Yangon Region DICA said.
Those enterprises include manufacturing businesses, garment businesses, hotel businesses and service businesses. The majority of them are CMP businesses.
“YRIC gives the go-ahead to 45 wholly domestic and foreign businesses. The CMP garment businesses played a key player among those endorsed businesses in February-August, creating 18,603 jobs for residents,” U Myo Khaing Oo shared information.
China is the leading investor in Myanmar’s CMP garment factories, followed by Chinese Taipei, Thailand, the Republic of Korea and Japan. The clothes and apparel are sent to Thailand, China, Singapore and European countries.
There are 505 garment factories, 48 footwear manufacturing enterprises, eight wig factories and 177 factories engaged in the production of bags, sportswear, sports shoes and socks on a CMP basis in the Yangon Region, in line with the existing rules and regulations.
