Bamboo plywood mat factory to be built in Myanmar

A plan is underway to build a bamboo plywood mat factory near Nay Pyi Taw in the middle region of Myanmar to enable export of them to foreign markets, said a resident of Myanmar who has experience in bamboo plywood mat factory in Manipur, India.
“In Myanmar, we could get natural products easily. We will bring the machines from India and set them up in Myanmar.
We will set up the factory with our own technology and our own capital investment. Now, an entrepreneur from Shan State is manufacturing the mats for over 20 years in Manipur, India. He bought the mats from the local weavers to glue them together.
Then, he exported bamboo plywood mats to Laos, Viet Nam, Thailand, Japan, America and South Korea. We are still choosing the name of the factory because it is a made-in-Myanmar product. We will establish the factory with an initial investment of K500 million and start the business when the pandemic can be controlled. There are eight bamboo associations in Myanmar, and they are giving us a helping hand,” said U Kyaw Kyaw Moe, an officer in charge of the Myanmar factory.
The bamboo mats from Myanmar factory will be exported to Laos, Viet Nam, Thailand, Japan, America and South Korea and the factory will give 20-year guarantee for their bamboo plywood mat products. — Thant Zin Win (Translated by Hay Mar)
