Additional information regarding shipping from the US to Myanmar
The Republic of the Union of Myanmar is a country that was formerly known as Burma and is located in South East Asia. It borders India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Laos and China and has a population of around 60,000,000. Burma has had a rich, varied and troubled history, however, a tourism drive has seen infrastructure improvements and it has begun to shake its reputation off as one of the most corrupt countries in the world.
As internet usage in Myanmar expands, the convenience and allure of shopping online is seeing eCommerce experiencing a rise in popularity. Consumer research shows females especially are more inclined to shop in the comfort of their home, rather than have to go to the mall. Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is home to over 2.5 million residents many of whom are getting to grips with the internet, however, while the convenience may attract some to online shopping, internet speed is a barrier for online retailers to overcome if it is to survive.
The low speeds of the internet in Myanmar may frustrate some shoppers. With few people online (1.2 percent of the 53 million population, said the World Bank in 2013) and smartphones in the hands of a small percentage of the population, the prospects for online shopping look tough, however this remains a popular shipping destination for mainly private and business related parcels, plus the eCommerce sector will continue to grow as the infrastructure develops and the nation embraces technology.
