‘The Boycott List’, lists products and brands produced by Burmese military-owned companies.
149 products and brands are listed, covering a wide range of sectors from construction, media, entertainment, agricultural products and trade.
The purpose of the briefing paper is to provide information for individuals, embassies, donors, aid agencies, and companies to help them avoid purchasing goods and services from the military.
Military-owned and controlled companies are an important source of revenue for the Burmese military. Buying goods and services from the military increases their revenue and this revenue is used to fund their operations, building their military capacity. The Burmese military are being investigated for crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court, and have been accused of genocide at an ongoing case at the International Court of Justice.
