The Norad-funded United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) project, “Strengthening National Quality Infrastructure for Trade in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar”, has come to a successful conclusion, having helped the national economy to improve the quality of goods and services through strengthening relevant institutional and private sector capacities.
This intervention fostered the use of international standards and conformity assessment procedures by the private sector to add value to their products, with Myanmar’s small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) increasing competitiveness on international markets, along with assistance on quality policy formulation and strengthening of national quality infrastructure institutions.
The technical assistance provided under the project increased confidence in and the quality of the test results of Myanmar’s laboratories and inspection bodies. The project developed the capacity of laboratories testing agri-food products, allowing them to meet increasing demand from the regulatory authorities to support market surveillance, but also to address the industry’s routine testing needs.
