First published in 1992 the Yangon directory is now in its 23rd year of publication. Since the first edition it has been the official directory commissioned by the Yangon City Development Committee.
Thanks to a committed team of over 350 staff in Yangon and Mandalay, the Yangon Directory is the market leader, with over 80,000 listings and 7,000 advertisements, under 1,000 business headings, making it the largest and most comprehensive directory in Myanmar.
Over 135,000 copies of the printed Yangon Directoryare circulated in over 36 cities nationwide.
MMRD publishes directories for Mandalay, Business Directories for Lower and Upper Regions, as well as trade and industrial directories.
Until 1992, when the Yangon Directory (YD) was first published, there were no classified listings of businesses operating in Myanmar. MMRD responded to this need and was met with gratitude when 2,000 people queued up to receive a copy on the YD’s first day of publication. Since then MMRD has become the official directory publisher commissioned by the Yangon City Development Committee.
In 2012 www.yangondirectory.com was launched as the first online classified directory for Myanmar.
In 2013 the Yangon Directory was named the official directory of the 27th South East Asian (SEA) Games along with its counterparts, the Mandalay Directory, Myanmar Business Directory ( Upper and Lower ).
In 2014 the Yangon Directory App was launched, providing consumers with access to the classified database of Yangon businesses through the mobile phone.
In 2015 the Mandalay Directory App was launched providing consumers with the classified database of Mandalay businesses through the mobile phone.
