Myanmar (Burma)


Myanmar’s aim is to harness its potential to help create a better governed, more peaceful and prosperous Myanmar that uses its increased wealth to improve education and health services, and reduce poverty. The remarkable process of change has given the UK a great opportunity to transform the lives of vulnerable people in Myanmar.

Top priorities

  • promoting good governance, including improved transparency and the rule of law
  • promoting inclusive growth and responsible investment
  • strengthening parliament and elected bodies at sub-national levels
  • helping the process of peace building and ethnic reconciliation
  • supporting productive and sustainable livelihoods and improved access to better health and education services

Help with Sector and Budget Figures
Please note that although budgets are generally split by year, some departments publish budgets that span multiple years. These are represented in the first year of their allocation. Cross-government allocations such as Prosperity Fund and Conflict, Stability and Security Fund are known to duplicate budgets published by other departments, as well as using multi-year budgets.
