Our mission

The British Government is encouraging and supporting Burma’s transition. We want Burma to become a stable, prosperous and democratic country, playing a positive role in the international community and supporting British interests.

Government departments, in particular the FCO, DFID, UKTI and MOD, work closely together to support transition in Burma, facilitated by the British Embassy in Rangoon and, where appropriate, working with the grain of Burmese-led reform processes.
