Thilawa edges ahead as logistics hub
Thilawa SEZ positions itself as the manufacturing and logistics hub of Myanmar, as Daizen Myanmar, a Sez-based company starts providing bonded warehouse services to both domestic and international companies. Such logistics liberalisation will boost Thai-myanmar cross-border trade and hence accelerate Myanmar's integration with the regional economy. Thilawa SEZ in southern Yangon is currently the only SEZ operating in Myanmar. The other two - Kyaukphyu SEZ in Rakhine and Dawei SEZ in Tanintharyi - are still at the planning stage. Daizen's SEZ warehouse license is a combination of bonded warehouse and general warehouse.
