To reflect our corporate structure, we have established a two-tier corporate governance system to govern Myanma Awba effectively:
- At the Group level, our Board of Directors includes three directors. They benefit from the support of our Advisory Board to ensure an efficient oversight of its responsibilities for the Group. The Advisory Group includes two members.
- The Group Board is supported by our Executive Committee, which includes representatives of the main Business Units and Functions of Myanma Awba.
Our distinguished Advisory Board and Executive Committee take the lead in ensuring the Group remains true to its values and beliefs as it serves the farmers of Myanmar.

In FY 20/21, the Board met 25 times. This high number of meetings reflects the Board’s involvement in the Group’s operation after February 2021. The Board was focused on safeguarding the Group’s sustainability, the security and integrity of its assets, the health and safety of its staff, and the continuity and compliance of its operations. It also reviewed and ensured that Myanma Awba’s mission was still relevant.
