DuPont announced it has commenced operations in Myanmar.
Myanmar becomes the 19th Asia territory, formerly Burma, where DuPont has a presence. DuPont Myanmar focuses on strengthening its local presence through collaboration with local partners to offer science-powered solutions in agriculture, food, energy and construction as well as supporting community initiatives and local people development.
Recent reforms in the nation have led more companies to open offices. However, the political environment remains difficult to navigate in a nation where a regime for decades closed off the country to much of the world. That left Myanmar poor and unable to benefit from the rapid growth in Asian economies.
Myanmar has seen rapid economic growth of late, making a move to launch operations worth attractive to DuPont.
