INCLUSIVE ECONOMIC GROWTH: INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES AND INCOME FOR ALL

U.S. assistance helps local enterprises to expand, creates new economic opportunities for local communities throughout the country, and empower smallholder farmers to improve their livelihoods.

Burma has enormous economic potential. It is a resource-rich country with access to large and growing markets. Nonetheless, a quarter of the country’s people live in poverty. The country seeks sustained economic transformation after decades of isolation, systemic corruption, and mismanagement. Many households cannot afford a nutritious diet and stunting among children is common. United States Government programs are working to meet those challenges by collaborating with the private sector, civil society, universities, and other donors to ensure equitable access to nutritious foods and inclusive economic opportunities for Burma’s people.
