Myanmar and IRRI

Myanmar and IRRI

Myanmar was once among the top exporters of rice in the world and, with recent renewed efforts, is poised to regain its status as such. The government has tapped IRRI for technical assistance for the development and implementation of the Myanmar Rice Sector Development Strategy (MRSDS).

On 5 December 2013, Myanmar President U Thein Sein, Minister for Agriculture and Irrigation U Myint Hlaing, and other members of the president’s cabinet came to IRRI to discuss a stronger Myanmar-IRRI partnership in rice research.
