EuroCham Myanmar launches Illicit Trade Advocacy Group

Mr. Sven Batenburg from EuroCham South Korea (ECCK) opened the meeting with a presentation of Illicit Trade advocacy. The meeting was attended by different industry leaders from very different sectors that are all struggling from negative impacts related to Illicit Trade.

The group has decided to work on a road-map to address these issues and work on awareness raising solutions that eventually will not only benefit the group-members, but the Myanmar economy as a whole as it will advocate more trade transparency; promoting much higher tax-revenues for the Myanmar authorities and other related forms of much needed job creation.
