Samenvatting

QUOTE “Myanmar is predicted to become the fourth fastest growing economy in 2017 and with this, also its garment industry is currently experiencing a rapid economic boom. Approximately two garment factories open every week which puts Myanmar in the position of becoming a rising competitor of common low cost production countries such as Bangladesh and India. After frequent media publications about horrible production conditions in such low cost sourcing markets, Myanmar seems to be the perfect country for brands to take the opportunity to have a ‘fresh’, sustainable start.” […] “[This] report outlines the development of Myanmar’s garment industry and investigates obstacles that currently stand in the way of creating a responsible production environment.” RESEARCH QUESTION As fashion companies are starting to source garments from Myanmar, which factors need to be considered before entering this market in general and especially for stakeholders that would like to produce responsibly? SUB QUESTIONS 1. What is the current social economic situation in Myanmar? 2. How did Myanmar’s garment industry develop over the past 25 years? 3. What are the challenges and opportunities that brands face wanting to start garment production in Myanmar? 4. What are the predominant issues that currently stand in the way of responsible garment production in Myanmar?
