  Myanmar kyat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Burmese kyat was introduced on July 1, 1952 when the Union Bank of Burma replaced the Burma Currency Board.
Kyat notes have been demonetized on a number of occasions with the ostensible aim of fighting fl marketeering, starting with the demonetization of 50 and 100 kyat notes on May 15, 1964.
On November 3, 1985, the 20, 50 and 100 kyat notes were demonetized again and replaced with new kyat notes in the unusual denominations of 25, 35 and 75, possibly chosen because of dictator Ne Win's predilection for numerology; the 75-kyat note was introduced on his 75th birthday.

 What is KYAT
The fees for KYAT range from $30 to $55 per three month quarter, depending on which practice group and if you are a Member, Resident, or Non-Resident of the Service Area.
Other KYAT fees include $3 5 for the annual USA Swimming membership and meet fees which vary from $5 to $20, depending on the meet, but most meets are optional.
KYAT will also help prepare them to swim for their high school or maybe even for a college.

In this sense, they were focused on the symptoms of the problems rather than at addressing their underlying causes, which included the overvaluation of the Kyat, the continued bias against agriculture, the restrictions on private sector activity, and the inefficiency of the large state enterprise sector, particularly in industry.
Overvaluation has meant that the Kyat value of imports (on which basis, customs duties and commercial taxes are assessed) is understated by a factor of about twenty, thus depriving the government of revenues of this order.
Since almost all of the private sector's purchases of imported goods are made at the unofficial exchange rate, it is that value of the Kyat rather than the official rate, which has been relevant to their consumption for the last two or three years.

For example, an import valued at USD 5,000 is calculated to have a value of 30,000 kyat at the official exchange rate, so a 200% tariff on this import would be 60,000 kyats.
Other legal means to avoid the official exchange rate include acquiring kyat at the unofficial rate by importing goods for resale in kyat, countertrade or production sharing arrangements, or generating a supply of kyat through local sales.
Any currency exchanged for kyat must be traded at an official exchange facility and noted on the back of the currency declaration form.

The Kyat is a non-convertible currency and cannot be imported or exported out of the country.
Part of the decline in the value of the Kyat can be attributed to the fact that much of the Government's deficit has been financed out of significant increases in the money supply.
However the present exchange rate for both the FEC and the Kyat as of December 1998 is approximately FEC 350 and Kyat 350 to one US Dollar.

The kyat, which has been under pressure since civil servants received a pay increase of more than 500% in April, recovered to around 385 kyat to the dollar by late August, after briefly testing the 400 kyat per dollar level.
The Burmese military regime resorted to various measures to bring the kyat’s drop under control, including mass arrests of moneychangers and "market-friendly interventions" such as price subsidies for gasoline and diesel fuel and the introduction of tax-free markets for produce from state-owned farms.
A commentary in the state-owned Mirror newspaper said that anti-junta elements were "attempting to stab the government in the back" by spreading the rumors.

These GOB purchases of the private sector's foreign exchange, which continued until July 1996, were paid for by an increase in kyat in circulation, which the GOB largely borrowed from the central bank.
In June 1996, the GOB began evaluating imports at an exchange rate of 100 kyat per U.S. dollar for import taxation purposes, thereby further limiting the transactions that occur at the official rate of exchange.

Yangon's currency fl-marketeers engage in a dangerous, shadowy dance in a city rocked this year by a coup attempt, skyrocketing inflation, highly questionable fiscal policies, and the dismal state of the economy.Myanmar's rigid military regime tolerates the trade to a point.
But it rounds up money changers without warning, as in April when the kyat crashed to an all-time low of 1,004 to the dollar on news that former dictator Ne Win's son-in-law and grandsons had been arrested for plotting a coup.
But it recently dived again to 900 kyat, and as vital trade routes with neighbouring Thailand were shut tight due to a simmering border row, observers said there are fears it could drop further, raising prices of basic goods and hurting an already impoverished people.
