The United States and the European Union have relaxed and lifted sanctions on Myanmar in many sectors during 2012 for the rapid political and economic changes of the Myanmar government led by President Thein Sein.
The US and EU imposed sanctions on Myanmar over two decades, responding against human rights violations of Myanmar military regime.
Although President Barack Obama lifted import ban on Myanmar in November, the US Congress still needs to affirm details of trade policies for import.
