    TIMELINE

    1983 - 1988YMMU Ye Min began his business career at the age of 19. As the eldest son of six children, he took on the responsibility of providing for his family after the sudden death of his father. His father had built a successful business representing approximately 25 French companies in Myanmar.

    Ye Min immediately met with officials from the French Embassy and their counterparts in Myanmar. He corresponded with his father’s French business partners, who were initially resistant to entrust their business to such a young man. In the end, Ye Min’s determination and persistence prevailed, and he secured over 90% of his father’s business, ultimately serving as their local representative in Myanmar. These companies included Rhône Poulenc, Saint-Gobain Desjonqueres, Michelin, May & Baker, and Hydroland, among others.

E.E.L. engaged in a number of trading activities, specializing in rice, beans and pulses, sesame, and rice bran, among others.
