About the Myanmar Britain Business Association (MBBA)

The Myanmar Britain Business Association (“MBBA”) was established in 1995 by Keith Win, a Chartered Accountant with Burmese and English heritage. Our co-founder was Peter Godwin (deceased) a banker and advisor to the then DTI.

The aims of the Association are: to promote commercial dialogue between Myanmar and Britain and to assist members in the promotion of trade, industry, investment and economic relations between the two countries. It is also a forum and networking opportunity for British businesses to get to know each other as well as Myanmar counterparts and other members to identify  opportunities for projects, bids and joint ventures.

To promote British know-how, technology, services and industries. To compile news, information and statistics on trade in general, on industrial affairs and on legal and financial matters worthy of interest, for distribution to members.

One achievement by the MBBA was to be accorded the opportunity by the Myanmar Government to meet with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in November 1998 (when she was under house arrest) in an attempt to bridge the gap between the two sides.
