Ministry of Industry


    With the intention of developing Myanmar into an industrialized country from an agricultural country via an agro-based industrialized one, many heavy and small mills and factories, which manufacture basic human needs: food, shelter and clothing; machines; machinery and spare parts, have been set up throughout the whole country. The mills and factories are in three categories of state-owned, corporatized and privatized. 

    After the independence of the nation, in spite of standing as an individual ministry to manage and control the industrial sector, ministries of combined sectors like Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ministry of Industry and Labour, Ministry of Industry and Mines were formed consecutively until 1952. In 1952, according to the Constitution of the Union of Burma, the Ministry of Industry (စက်မှုလက်မှုဝန်ကြီးဌာန) was separately established with a department, a board and (8) corporations to expand the work area of the industrial enterprises.

    In 1972, in line with the new administration system of the Union Revolutionary Council, the name of the ministry was changed into Ministry of Industry (စက်မှုဝန်ကြီးဌာန) organizing with (16) corporations by the Notification No. (1) dated 16.3.1972. Then, in 1975, the Government of the Socialist Republic of the Union of Burma reorganized the Ministry of Industry into the Ministry of Industry - 1 and the Ministry of Industry - 2 on 1.4.1975 by the Notification No. (3) dated 29.3.1975 in order to implement the tasks of industrial sector more effectively.

    The Ministry of Industry - 1 and the Ministry of Industry - 2 were reconstituted as the Ministry of Industry by the Notification No. (95/2011) dated 2.12.2011 of the President’s Office of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The Ministry was organized with 12 Departments; Union Ministerial Office, three Directorates, six Enterprises and two Centers as follow:
    (1)    Union Ministerial Office
    (2)    Directorate of Industry
    (3)    Department of Industrial Planning
    (4)    Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection
    (5)    No. (1) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (6)    No. (2) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (7)    No. (3) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (8)    Textile Industries
    (9)    Pharmaceutical and Foodstuff Industries
    (10)  Paper and Home Utilities Industries 
    (11)  Central Research and Development Center
    (12)  Small and Medium Enterprise Development Center

    As there are Directorates of the same functions under the Ministry of Industry; constitutions of some departments need to be expanded for the development of private industrial sector and Small and Medium Enterprises; and some organizations were abolished due to Public Private Partnership (PPP) programmes, the Ministry was reorganized on 1.4.2014, with the approval of the Union Government Meeting No. (3/2014), with ten Departments; Union Ministerial Office, two Directorates, six Enterprises and one Center as follow:
    (1)    Union Ministerial Office
    (2)    Directorate of Industry
    (3)    Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection
    (4)    No. (1) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (5)    No. (2) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (6)    No. (3) Heavy Industries Enterprise
    (7)    Textile Industries
    (8)    Pharmaceutical and Foodstuff Industries
    (9)    Paper and Home Utilities Industries 
    (10)  Central Research and Development Center

    In order to adapt the governance reform plans of that time, the government organizations need to be restructured to cope with the modern system. In this regard, the Union Ministerial Office was redesigned to be expanded; the Directorates were renamed and scaled down; some Enterprises were consolidated; and the Center was abolished.

    The new organizational structure of the Ministry of Industry - redesigned as mentioned above - was reorganized on 1.4.2015, with the approval of the Union Government Meeting No. (7/2015), with seven Departments; Union Ministerial Office, two Directorates and four Enterprises as follow:
    (1)    Union Ministerial Office
    (2)    Directorate of Industrial Collaboration
    (3)    Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection
    (4)    No. (1) Heavy Industrial Enterprise
    (5)    No. (2) Heavy Industrial Enterprise
    (6)    No. (3) Heavy Industrial Enterprise
    (7)    Myanma Pharmaceutical Industrial Enterprise 

    In the structure mentioned above, No. (18) Heavy Industry (Inn Gone) under No. (1) Heavy Industrial Enterprise was handed-over to Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.

    No. (11) Heavy Industry (Yangon), No. (12) Heavy Industry (Htone Bo), No. (13) Heavy Industry (Magway) and No. (25) Heavy Industry (Myaing) were also handed-over to the Ministry of Defence with the approval of the Union Government Meeting No. (2/2016) dated 13.1.2016. After that, with the approval of the Union Government Meeting No. (15/2016) dated 10.11.2016, the Ministry of Industry was resized. 

    By the Notification No. (123/2019) dated 28.11.2019 of the President’s Office of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Planning and Finance were merged as the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry. As No. (7) Industrial Training Center (Thahton) and No. (8)  Industrial Training Center (Monywa) were newly added, the allowed organization capacity of the Ministry was redesigned.

    By the Order No. (117/2021) dated 3.5.2021 of the State Administration Council of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in accordance with Section 419 of the State Constitution, the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry was reformed as the Ministry of Planning and Finance and the Ministry of Industry.
