Defence Services Institute


Defence Services Institute
   (DSI)
   Established in 1951 as a military-managed organization originally meant to provide Tatmadaw personnel with reasonably priced consumer goods. It established "DSA shops" throughout the country, but during the Caretaker Government period (1958-1960), it became the largest economic entity in Burma, controlling 14 enterprises involved in shipping, construction, financial services, trade, tourism, food processing, and other sectors. Although nationalized in 1963, it represented the Tatmadaw's determination to control the economy and was the prototype for the military-owned Union of Myanmar Economic Holdings, Ltd., postsocialist Burma's largest conglomerate.
