In its report, the IMF said that in 2008 a record 6.4 million people who had made at least two remittances made it to third countries via Myanmar, up from 4.6 million in 2007.
That was an increase of over 70 percent from previous years.
The report is based on data from the Myanmar Ministry of Social Welfare, which has a population of around 300 million, and from the World Bank.
As well as China, the top six destinations of remittances were:
United States: 18.6 million
U.K.: 10.4 million

Russia: 3.9 million
Germany: 2.4 million
India: 2.3 million
Finland:오바마카지노 1.7 million
Nigeria: 1.2 million
Pakistan: 1.1 million
