Australia has had diplomatic relations with Myanmar since 1952. Myanmar, one of the poorest countries in the region, is undergoing a period of upheaval following the deposition on 1 February 2021 of the democratically elected government.
Australia has been a steadfast supporter of Myanmar’s transition to democracy and a market-led economy. This is underpinned by Australia’s development assistance.
