The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia.

Your partner in three of the most exciting developing markets - Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos

Since its establishment and official opening by German Federal President Joachim Gauck in February 2014, the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce supports German companies seeking information and advice on market entry in one of the most exciting countries worldwide.

Since November 2018 we also have the official mandate for two more very exciting markets, Cambodia and Laos.

All three countries has started an ambitious process of reforms and economic development. Challenges remain in a market, where legislative frameworks and the local business structure undergo rapid changes.

The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce works in close co-operation with local institutions, especially the national chambers and fosters contacts with local companies. It works alongside the German Myanmar Business Chamber (GMBC).

AHKs (German Chambers Abroad) are closely linked to the network of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs) in Germany. Together, IHKs and AHKs support German companies in establishing and expanding their business relations with foreign countries.

The umbrella organisation of the IHKs is the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), which also coordinates and supports the AHK network.

The close cooperation with the German trade associations also ensures that the AHKs are networked close to the companies and markets.

Based on a resolution of the German Bundestag, the AHKs are pro rata supported by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action.

AHK Myanmar combines three functions.

AHK Myanmar is a central actor of German foreign trade promotion on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. It represents the interests of the German economy at its locations. It informs and promotes Germany as a business location.

Membership organization

The AHK Myanmar and the German Myanmar Business Chamber gather around them the companies that are active in bilateral economic relations. These members give the AHK weight and voice when dealing with politics, business and administration to promote bilateral economic relations.

Service providers for companies
