CDC has no investments in military or state-owned companies in Myanmar and does not directly work with or partner with the government. Over the past two years, CDC has tightened its due diligence process to mitigate the risk of UK funds going to military owned companies.

CDC is reviewing the impact of the 1st February Myanmar coup on its investments in the country.
