Under the new government of President Thein Sein, who was inaugurated in March 2011, Myanmar is anticipating sustained economic development through advancing democratization domestically and moving toward a market economy. Under these circumstances, there is a pressing need for Myanmar to acquire and develop talented people who have advanced expertise in management or technical knowledge that has international currency.
The Myanmar-Japan Center for Human Resources Development is located in the building of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI)-a leading organization of Myanmar's business community that has more than 30,000 members. In order to train core industrialists who will support the development of Myanmar's economics, the center conducts business courses targeting business administration people, particularly for those in middle management positions in companies. Additionally, it serves as a hub for business information networks that will contribute to strengthening economic relations between Japan and Myanmar.
