Myanmar promoting development of Thilawa special economic zone

TOKYO -- The development of an industrial complex having an international level of infrastructure services is underway on a huge lot about a 50 minute drive from Yangon, the economic center of Myanmar. It is the first such project to be built in the Southeast Asian country.  

Big automakers, food companies and other manufacturers have announced plans to build plants in the Thilawa special economic zone.

     The Japanese and Myanmar governments are actively involved in the project to build the Thilawa special economic zone, and Japanese workers are stationed there to support companies from Japan. It is drawing attention not only because of its functions as an industrial park but also as a symbolic joint venture between Japan and Myanmar.
