The Department for International Trade (DIT) helps businesses export, drives investment, opens up markets and champions free trade. DIT’s team in Burma play an active role in supporting UK businesses looking to do business with Burma.
We offer advice and support on working with local partners and encourage all British companies to undertake appropriate due diligence on any partnerships. We also ensure that companies are aware of UK legislation including the UK Bribery Act (2010) and any remaining sanctions in relation to doing business with Burma.
The Department for International Trade continues to support trade with Burma as an important part of driving mutual prosperity, creating jobs and driving economic growth, which the UK Government believes will be crucial to securing the country's political transition.
