ProPak Myanmar 2017 - Myanmar’s leading and largest dedicated international processing and packaging trade eventopen’s today, Thursday 21st and running until Saturday 23rd September at its new venue, MEP at Mindama, Yangon.

Myanmar is rich natural resources, large population and a strategic location positioned to benefit from the economic ascension of China, India and Thailand. Although Myanmar has faced some food security challenges in 2011, it is currently defined as one of the world’s “food surplus” countries, producing 55 and 60 milliontons of agri-foods each year and has a potential to become one of the world’s biggest food producers. On the other hand, the agriculture sector dominates the economy, contributing 38% of GDP and 23% of exports and employing 60% of the workforce, according to World Bank. Therefore, the government and development agencies aims to bolster farming production, improve sectoral monitoring and raise the sector’s competitiveness to meet the international standard.

After the reformation, Myanmar will experience rapid economic catch-up in the coming years. The agriculture sector is already gaining ground and will likely be the key driver for growth. A new vision for modernizing Myanmar's agriculture assisted in fostering industrial development. This is where ProPak Myanmar can help support the growth.
