Myanmar Trade Promotion Organization - MYANTRADE

Myanmar Trade Centre to open in Singapore

The Myanmar Trade Promotion Organization (MYANTRADE) was officially launched on 1st April 2016, aimed at placing Myanmar as a competitive nation in the regional trade arena by raising its business industry exports.

Now, sources confirm that Myantrade has plans to open a Myanmar Trade Centre in Singapore to provide support for the country's agricultural exports. Secretary of the Myanmar Fruit, Flower and Vegetable Producer and Exporter Association said the trade centre - which will be monitored closely by the Myanmar Embassy to Singapore - can help Myanmar expand its farming exports to the city-state.

As reported on, Singapore is one of Myanmar's trading partners. Singapore imports fruits such as Sein Ta Lone (mangoes) and muskmelons from Myanmar. Delivery time from Myanmar to Singapore is just a week. Singapore's population is small so we cannot sell a lot (to them) but their consumption and spending power is high. This creates a market for us," said U Kyaw Thu, adding that exporting agricultural products to Singapore is a relatively easy process.
