Copenhagen: AP Moller-Maersk Group announced today that it has received a permanent license to operate container business activities in Myanmar.
The business will involve three of subsidiaries of the group, Maersk Line, MCC Transport and Safmarine and an agency in Yangon will be officially opened in May 2014.
"We are pleased to be granted a permanent business license to operate our own agency in Myanmar. Since the European Union and United States eased sanctions in 2012, we have experienced a surge in interest in sourcing goods to and from Myanmar," says My Therese Blank, Myanmar Country Manager of Maersk.
"By establishing our own agency in Myanmar, we will be better able to take part in facilitating global trade, support economic growth, and offer support and local know-how to customers looking to enter this market,” Blank added. [21/02/14]
