Thilawa Zone B to start in November this year

Posted on : 23 Aug, 2016


Manufacturers who establish operations in SEZs stand to benefit from certain advantages - from economies of scale, to access to port/airport facilities and controlled rents. The government  will target approvals for export-oriented industries and import substitution companies.

Thilawa Zone A is almost 90% completed. Construction for bigger Zone B will start in November and land in Zone B can be leased from now until 2064, with the option to rent for 25 more years for an additional fee. 12 factories have launched operations, 25 more are due to open soon, and 30 factories will be built next. 

With existing levels of investment, manufacturing capacity can reach up to $241 million dollars a year and total investment into Thilawa is expected to reach $1 billion in a few years and the value of annual production to rise to $350 million.  Myanmar’s new government also recognizes that the provision of international-standard infrastructureis key to securing more foreign investment into Thilawa.

The progress of Thilawa Zone B will not only boost the confidence of international investors but also accelerate growth in Myanmar’s promising manufacturing sector.

On the 26th of September, delegates attending 2nd Myanmar Manufacturing Summit on 27-28 September, 2016 in Yangon will be taken on a special tour of Thilawa SEZ. This complimentary site visit is only available to registered delegates and allocated on first-come-first-serve basis.

Japan’s Nissan to start assembling cars in Myanmar

Posted on : 16 Jun, 2016


With the opening of the economy and a new government, Myanmar’s auto manufacturing market is set to grow. With newfound optimism, major manufacturers are investing in Myanmar.


Nissan, a renown Japanese automaker, had announced plans to build the largest automobile manufacturing site in Myanmar a few years ago. Nissan started selling cars in the country in 2013. This includes vehicles such as X-Trail sports utility vehicle, Altima sedan, Navara pickup truck, NV350 Urvan van and Civilian minibus.


Now, along with its local partner Tan Chong Motor Group, Nissan will begin assembling new cars for the first time in the country.


While the new facility in the Bago region is still under construction, Nissan will start-off its assembling activities at an existing Tan Chong factory. The unit will be used to assemble Nissan’s Sunny compact sedan.


Once the new facility is completed, the operations will move there, that has a capacity to produce 10,000 units.


Nissan’s investments in Myanmar is in line with their expansion and growth plans which include other emerging markets such as India, Brazil, Russia and Nigeria.


For more information on manufacturing opportunities in Myanmar, attend 2nd Myanmar Manufacturing Summit on 27-28 September, 2016 in Yangon.
