Mandate

The EuroCham Agrobusiness Advocacy Group is a platform for  information and knowledge sharing which alternately feeds the discussion on relevant matters for all advocacy group members involved and active in the agrobusiness sector in Myanmar. Through this advocacy group pressing matters which influence the working reality of agrobusiness in all various aspects in Myanmar in either a positive or negative way can be channeled towards a higher level to create change. The goals are therefore twofold: on the one hand the realisation of an environment in which agriculture can flourish sustainably on a national level from producer to consumer and on the other hand creating opportunities on an international level in which the connection between Myanmar and international players is made easier.    

 To join the group, please send an email to info@eurocham-myanmar.org.
