What does the EU Delegation do?
The Delegation promotes good relations between Myanmar and the EU, through dialogue with the Myanmar government, as well as with other political actors and representatives of civil society and the media. The Delegation reaches out to the business community and economic actors to strengthen the economic cooperation between Myanmar and the European Union.
The Delegation raises awareness about the EU, its policies, and the opportunities to travel and study in Europe. Together with the EU member states, we promote European culture and encourage cultural exchange between the EU and Myanmar.
The Delegation manages the implementation of the EU's extensive assistance programme in Myanmar. We are the eyes and ears on the ground to ensure that our programmes can be effective and sustainable. Through our constant engagement with the government and international partners we ensure effective coordination of international support to Myanmar's democratic transition.
