Coca-Cola opens first plant in Myanmar in six decades

  • Coca-Cola opened its first bottling plant in Myanmar on Tuesday in more than six decades.

    The world's biggest soft-drink maker is one of the first American firms to invest in Myanmar following the US government’s decision to lift sanctions against the nation.

    Coca-Cola has said it will invest $200 million over the next five years and create thousands of jobs.

    Only two countries remain where the company does not officially do business.

    The firm left after the Cuban revolution when Fidel Castro's administration began to seize private assets. It has never operated in North Korea either.
