The Pa-O National Organization (Burmese: ပအိုဝ္းအမ်ဳိးသား အဖြဲ႔ခ်ဳပ္) is a political organization of the Pa-O people in Burma, with the Pa-O National Army as its military wing. In 1990, the Pa-O National Army had about 500-600 men.

The PNO signed a cease-fire agreement with the junta on April 11, 1991. The PNO controls Special Region-6 in southern Shan State and has been granted a number of business concessions.
