MYANMAR

Setting Up an NGO in Myanmar

In the past few years, particularly after Cyclone Nargis in 2008, political shifts in Myanmar have resulted in the country being more receptive to civil society efforts.  This has encouraged many international organisations to set up and operate non-governmental organisations ("NGOs") to assist in the development and humanitarian efforts in the Golden Land.

NGOs in Myanmar have to register under the State Law and Order Restoration Council Law No. 6/88 of September 30 1988. The official "Guidelines for UN agencies, International Organizations, NGO/INGOs” ("Guidelines") issued by the Myanmar government provide that all international NGOs should officially register with the Ministry of Home Affairs and sign a basic cooperation agreement with the Union of Myanmar with respect to the proposed project.  All aid funds for the project should be channeled through the Myanmar Foreign Trade Bank. NGOs are required to inform the Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Home Affairs and any other relevant Ministries when they open or close their offices.
