Myanmar:

Bamboo Sector Competitiveness Study – Agronomy Overview

Key Staff:

Alex Sutton


LTS is provided Bamboo agronomy consultancy services to DFID’s Business Innovation Facility (BIF) in Myanmar to complete a Bamboo Sector Competitiveness Study (2015). Myanmar has the third largest stock of bamboo in the world but the resource value is largely underestimated due to the lack of awareness of its potential as a processed commodity for export and the priority given by the Government, and investors, to exploit natural resources (e.g.: teak, oil and gas), or to develop industrial plantations such as rubber and palm oil involving the acquisition (through concession) and clearance of land. The study analysed Myanmar’s competitive advantage on the international market for high-value addition processed and manufactured bamboo and how different business models could contribute to poverty reduction and to what extent.
