Small & Medium Enterprises Development Policies in Myanmar
Chapter 1 Overview of the SME Policies

1-(1) Definition of SME and Its basis The official definition of SMEs in Myanmar since 1990 given in the following table tends to focus on the industrial sector only. Four measures or criteria for classification, namely number of employees, capital investment, production volume and electrical usages are applied to distinguish different sizes of Myanmar private firms. No distinction in size is made for enterprises under the trade and service sectors or cottage and handicraft industries. According to the definition of SMEs defined by the Private Industrial Enterprise Law 1990, the definition of SMEs in Myanmar can be described as follow: No. 1. 2. 3. 4. Category Power (HP) used No. of workers Capital outlay (Kyat million) Production value per year (million) Small 3 to 25 10 to 50 Up to 1 Up to 2.5 Medium 26 to 50 51 to 100 Over 1 to 5 Over 2.5 to 10
