  • The Chinese people in Burma, Burmese Chinese, or Sino-Burmese (Burmese: မြန်မာတရုတ်လူမျိုး; Chinese: 緬甸華人; pinyin: Miǎndiàn Huárén) are a group of overseas Chinese born or raised in Burma (Myanmar). Burmese Chinese constitute one group of Overseas Chinese and is relatively small compared to other Overseas Chinese communities in Southeast Asia. Although the Chinese officially make up three percent of the population, the actual figure is believed to be much higher. Among the under-counted Chinese populations are: those of mixed background; those that have registered themselves as ethnic Bamar to escape discrimination; illegal Chinese immigrants that have flooded Upper Burma since the 1990s (up to 2 million by some estimates) but are not counted due to the lack of reliable census taking. As of 2012, the Burmese Chinese population is estimated to be at 1.6 million. Burmese Chinese are well represented in all levels of Burmese society and play a leading role in the Burmese commerce and business sector as well as public service. Several Burmese Chinese such as Khin Nyunt, Ne Win, and San Yu have been major figures in the Burmese political scene. The Burmese Chinese are also a well established middle class ethnic group and dominate the Burmese economy today. Moreover, the Burmese Chinese have a disproportionately large presence in Burmese the high powered, private sector, white collar jobs and highly educated class in Burma. (en)
  • Chinezen in Myanmar of Chinese Birmezen zijn in aantal eigenlijk veel groter dan de tellingen van Myanmar, want vele Chinese Birmezen zeggen tegen de staat dat ze Bamar zijn, om discriminatie van Birmezen te voorkomen. De Chinese Birmezen domineren de Birmese economie en op politiek gebied houden zij zich afwezig. De meeste Chinezen wonen in Yangon, Yangon Chinatown, Mandalay, Taunggyi en Bago. Dertig tot veertig procent van de Mandalaynezen is etnisch Han-Chinees. (nl)
  • 緬甸華人,即緬華,指生長在緬甸的華人。儘管官方數字認為緬甸華人佔緬甸總人口3%左右,但實際數字很可能更高,原因包括許多為逃避歧視而瞞報華人身份的緬甸華人、以及一些屬於非法移民的人士等。 華人在緬甸是經濟主力,擁有相對較高的教育程度與社會地位,同時也積極融入緬甸當地主流文化。緬甸華人雖然在經濟上取得較大成功,但長期以來一直受到緬甸政府的嚴重壓迫。緬甸華人中除了果敢華人以外,其民族身分基本不被緬甸政府承認。 緬甸華人一般分為閩南人、潮汕人、广府人、客家人和雲南人。閩粵兩省的僑民佔緬甸華人總數的45%。 (zh)
