报导称，麒麟将在当地设立子公司，从获得军方资助的缅甸经济控股公司（Myanmar Economic Holdings）手中，接管这家在缅甸历史最悠久、总部在北部城市曼德勒的酿酒厂。
缅甸投资委员会（MyanmarInvestment Commission）有望批准这项协议。日本麒麟于2015年收购缅甸市场龙头缅甸酿酒厂（Myanmar Brewery），若本次收购成功，麒麟将掌控缅甸90%的啤酒市场。
Japanese brewer Kirin will buy Mandalay Brewery of Myanmar for an estimated several hundred million yen （several million dollars） in its latest effort to strengthen its presence in the Asia-Oceania region, a newspaper said on February 11.
Kirin will create a local subsidiary to take over the country's oldest brewery, based in the northern city of Mandalay, from the military-backed Myanmar Economic Holdings （MEHL）， the Nikkei business daily said.
The Myanmar Investment Commission is expected to approve the deal soon, it said.
With the planned purchase, Kirin, which bought local market leader Myanmar Brewery in 2015, will control 90 percent of the country's beer market.
