The Myanmar Garment Sector fact sheet aims to update stakeholders on the current state of Myanmar’s apparel sector and is intended to contribute to greater transparency and understanding of the sector’s importance for the livelihoods of the hundreds of thousands of people in Myanmar. The Factsheet covers the structure of the sector (including garments, footwear, and luggage), the situation of workers, and the sector’s contribution to Myanmar’s economy, including tax revenue. It also addresses the question of military involvement in the sector. This second edition updates the version published on 24 January 2022.
The Factsheet has been prepared by EuroCham Myanmar, in cooperation with the Garment Advocacy Group (GAG), which brings together over 38 factories and brands. EuroCham Myanmar is the European Chamber of Commerce in Myanmar, representing over 150 companies with European background who are active in Myanmar. Special thanks also to the SMART Factories Programme,
