The Yangon Region Investment Committee (YRIC) endorsed one domestic and six foreign enterprises in the manufacturing sector, with an estimated capital of over K1.633 billion and US$7.148 million at a meeting 11/2022 held on 26 November at the YRIC office in Yankin Township.
Those seven projects will execute the manufacturing of footwear products and clothes on a Cutting, Making, and Packing (CMP) basis, the manufacturing of building materials and the manufacturing of structural metal products such as steel structure and colour steel tile. They will create 2,885 jobs for residents.
The manufacturing sector has attracted the most foreign investments in Yangon Region, with enterprises engaging in the production of pharmaceuticals, vehicles, container boxes, and garments on a cutting, making, and packing (CMP) basis.
To date, foreign investments from China, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea, Viet Nam, India, China Taipei, Malaysia, the British Virgin Islands and Seychelles are arriving in the region.

Myanmar attracted foreign direct investments of $1.45 billion from 52 enterprises during the April-October period. Singapore is the top source of FDI in Myanmar so far. Fourteen Singapore-listed enterprises pumped in foreign investments of $1.154 billion into Myanmar in the past seven months.
