Myanmar Port Assessment
The main ports of Myanmar can be found in 9 cities: Sittwe, Thandwe, Kyuak Phyu (Rakkhine State), Pathein (Ayeyarwaddy Division), Yangon (Yangon Division), Mawlamyine (Mon State), Dawei, Myeik and Kawthaung (Tanintharyi Division). Most international cargo arrives at Yangon port. The other ports are mostly used for inland transportation and handle much less international cargo. The other ports are also not accessible for large ocean going vessels –only for drafts to 4-5m- and there is no mechanical cargo handling equipment available.
