MYANMAR: Overseas Investors Now Free to Run Wholesale and Retail Businesses
Overseas investors are now free to trade in all legal goods on both a retail and wholesale basis. This entitlement extends across all imported and domestically-manufactured goods and can be conducted via either a wholly foreign-owned enterprise or through a joint venture with a local partner. Overseas investors, however, will not be permitted to own or operate any retail outlet less than 929 sq m in size in order to protect the livelihoods of local mini-mart and convenience store operators.
