Introduction / History

The Sino Burmese have lived in China for a long time and are also called Burmese Chinese. They have major parts in business in Burma or Myanmar. They are well educated and have ruling roles regards the Burmese economy.

The city of Mandalay is important for trading and Chinese businessmen have become very involved in the economy of this city. Many have come from Yunnan province in China.

Sport such as football has become very big in Burma and the Chinese are involved in that and also have businesses in restaurants, stores, money exchange and manufacturing for example. They also have links with big Chinese corporations in things like shipbuilding.

Most Chinese in Burma speak in Burmese. The more educated can speak Mandarin and English too. Their religion is mainly Buddhism. There are many Buddhist Chinese temples in the capital Rangoon or Yangon. Most Sino Burmese live in the big cities. They tend to eat similar foods to that in China.

Amongst the Sino Chinese in Burma are the Panthay Hui who follow Islam.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Sino Burmese look to Jesus Christ rather than making money as their main goal
* Pray that gospel materials will bring them to Salvation in Jesus Christ.
