A New Frontier for Medical Equipment Manufacturers
By Mark Aying

A year ago, could you spell Myanmar? Pronounce it? Find it on a map?

Most importantly: Did you see it as a new untapped frontier for your products?

Until very recently, the Southeast Asian country formerly known as Burma was known mostly for its isolation and its oppressive military regime.

Then a new civilian government took power last year, instituting political and financial reforms. In response, the United States dropped most economic sanctions, creating one of the most exciting potential markets — 60 million people strong — for Western businesses in years.

That opportunity was highlighted by President Barack Obama’s visit to Myanmar on Nov. 19, the first-ever visit to the country by a U.S. President.

The rush to do business in Myanmar is in full swing and intensifying. My company, Asian Medical, is ready to help you capitalize on this emerging market.

Myanmar is one of the 29 Asia Pacific countries in which we recruit, train and motivate medical equipment dealers to sell your US-manufactured products. We know the region and we have a database of more than 1,000 dealers and potential dealers.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, one CEO likened the business potential in Myanmar to that of Vietnam in the mid-1990s, jut after the U.S. lifted sanctions there. Asian Medical was there then. We got our start in Vietnam in 1996, the year after President Clinton lifted the sanctions and just as that market was taking off.
