Myanmar Foreign Correspondents’ Club is open to foreign journalists visiting or living in Myanmar.

We held our first monthly meet-up in February 2013, and so far we’ve had journalists from The South China Morning Post, Al Jazeera, AFP, Reuters, Democratic Voice of Burma, Myanmar Business Today, Mizzima and The Myanmar Times attend. It’s a casual meet-up rather than a formal meeting (but it’s worthwhile bringing your business cards!)

We’d be very glad to hear from local journalists who would be willing to share their experiences with us during an FCC meeting, which are held on the first Tuesday of every month.

A Facebook group has been created – it’s a closed group to respect members’ privacy, but new members are always welcome. Please join the group for event dates – it can also be a good resource for finding photographers/stringers and so forth.

Please note that this group is not to be confused with Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Myanmar, which is a group for Myanmar citizens working for foreign news outlets (https://sites.google.com/site/myanmarfcc/Home).

For any queries, please email jess.mudditt[at]gmail.com

  1. Hi Can you help we are considering out next football tour in Yangon we are a very social team of old men broken down average age about 50. Do know of any local team equally old and broken down that might like a game two dates are being considered May 22 or July 2 2015. We also need to locate a reasonable pitch?

    1. Hi Antony. I think the best approach is to join the google group called Yangon Expat Connection and post your query. If it’s AFL you play, I’m sure there will be some takers – and likewise for soccer! Best of luck, Jess
