Thilawa Special Economic Zone

Thilawa Special Economic Zone – located on the outskirts of Yangon – is the first Special Economic Zone (SEZ) built in Myanmar. It had become fully operational in 2015. Inside Thilawa SEZ, both the hard and soft infrastructure – from roads and utilities to supporting services such as maintenance – have been developed to the international standards. It is located at around 20 km South-East of Yangon. This is the biggest commercial city of Myanmar and very close to the Thilawa container port.

Currently the SEZ has over 110 investors from a wide range of countries and will expand further over the coming years.
