Myanmar is the largest country in mainland south-east Asia with a land area of 676,577 square kilometres. It was a province of India, under Britain, named Burma until 1948. A coup d'etat in 1962 led to the establishment of a military government that ruled until 2011.

Gross Written Premium was MMK 80.8bn during 2016-17.

Until 2013, the state-owned Myanma Insurance (MI) had a monopoly. 12 private insurers were subsequently licensed, albeit restricted to writing certain classes. Most were composites, but in 2019 were splitting into separate life and non-life companies to facilitate joint ventures with foreign companies.
