Myanmar: Gas Modernization Reverse Trade Mission

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) sponsored a Reverse Trade Mission (RTM) for a delegation of officials from relevant ministries and state-owned enterprises responsible for development, investment decisions and procurement in Myanmar’s gas sector.

The goal of this RTM, which was organized by Meridian on behalf of USTDA, was to familiarize these officials with U.S. operators, technology providers, manufacturers, and service providers that could potentially participate in power generation and transmission projects. Delegates met with federal and state regulators, U.S. company-operated gas-fired power production facilities, service and maintenance providers, financiers and U.S. operators/suppliers of related U.S. technology equipment and services. This visit also enabled U.S. companies to establish or increase their presence in the booming economy of Myanmar, as well as throughout Southeast Asia.

Delegates included representatives from Ministry of Electric Power, Yangon Electricity Supply Board, Electric Supply Enterprise, Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise, and Ministry of Energy.
