WASHINGTON — Gap Inc. plans to produce apparel at two factories in Myanmar, making it the first American retailer of note to enter the market since the U.S. lifted a nine-year ban on imports from the country last year.
The retailer made the announcement at a signing ceremony in Yangon, Myanmar, on Saturday, launching a partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development to provide assistance and opportunities for women in the country. Gap’s apparel made in Myanmar, previously and often still referred to as Burma, will be available in stores this summer.
