On February 1, 2021, the Burmese military overthrew the democratically elected civilian government of Burma in a coup d’état. Since then, Burmese security forces have engaged in brutal violence against the people of Burma. In response to the coup and oppression of the Burmese people, on March 29, 2021, United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai announced the suspension of all U.S. diplomatic engagement, meetings, and cooperation with Burma under the U.S.-Burma Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA). The suspension will remain in effect until the return of a democratically elected government in Burma.
For more information on the Administration’s actions in response to the coup in Burma, please refer to the White House fact sheet.
