He says the aid will be a combination of money, educational support and technical assistance in areas such as agriculture.
Mr Key says everyone needs to have a degree of patience because the reforms taking place in Myanmar are a significant change.
Last year, Mr Key announced $7 million towards humanitarian aid and the construction of dairy farm capabilities in Myanmar.
Mr Sein thanked the Prime Minister and New Zealanders for their ongoing support.
