KUBOTA Opens New Doors
in Myanmar

Introduction

Asia's last frontier – since the 2011 installation of a civil government, Myanmar is often referred to as such among foreign investors.
The country captured the international spotlight when its bid for the position of ASEAN chair was approved in 2014, a year that coincidentally marked the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Myanmar.
In fact, the two countries have long enjoyed friendly relations, in which KUBOTA has played no small role.
As the country opens up its doors wide to high economic growth,
the “second chapter” of KUBOTA's commitment to betterment of everyday life in Myanmar has begun.
