       “Industrial Bank of Korea has applied for a license to open its office in Myanmar. It provides nearly 80 percent of the SMEs in South Korea,”he added.

       There are 13 foreign banks that have received permission from the Myanmar government to provide banking services in the local market, and the Central Bank of Myanmar in November issued an order which allows foreign banks to provide financial services to local enterprises in the same way local banks do.
