Welcome to Myanmar Customs Brokers Association
The Myamar business quickly expanding in the 1989s, mainly due to the enormous expansion in the nation's imports and exports industries, electronic, agriculture, furnishings and other processing industries to trade goods, through the harbor and airports as well as throughout the state and the area as a consequence of the promotion and cooperation of the government.
The Customs Clearane sector therefore assumed a more important and proactive part, but the pace of its development led to fierce competition and tremendous economic development in the huge size of the markets, and many felt that the sector was lacking guidance, as the sector was not regulated and had no control structure to provide customs clearance according to these global norms.
In order to tackle the difficulties faced by the customs profession, a group of customs agents met and eventually agreed to set up an organisation that would serve the whole area. In 1984, Myanmar began the practise of the H.S. Code Thus; the Director General of Myanmar's Customs Department was a member of this initial group of proposals to establish an alliance of customs handlers, which was presented to the Ministry of Commerce.
The Association of Myanmar customs office was formally opened in 1997/98.
