About Mandalay: Mandalay is the second-largest city and the last royal capital of Myanmar. Located 716 km (445 miles) north of Yangon on the east bank of the Irrawaddy River, the city has a population of 1,225,553 (2014 census). It has over 20,000 registered businesses, and is a main trading center and transit hub for jade, gems and agricultural products. Its strategic location in the north of the country gives the city a prosperous border trade with China, and India. 75 per cent of businesses in Mandalay are still dependent on agriculture; main products include rice, sugar, and beans, and pulses, which companies generally trade to resellers in Yangon or export to China or India. Mandalay is also an industrial hub. Mandalay’s industrial zones house over 1,100 factories, with most of the companies involved in the production of agricultural products or heavy machinery. Another clear indication of the commercial importance of Mandalay is the fact that all of Myanmar’s 14 private banks have branches in the city. Despite Nay Pyi Taw's recent rise, Mandalay remains Upper Burma's main commercial, educational and health center.
