Myanmar’s political transition has ushered in a period of change and adjustment over this past year. With the release of the revised investment law and rules, there is a sense of optimism that the government is taking active steps to promote foreign investments and business in the country.

The 2nd ASEAN-Myanmar Forum will discuss the broader geo-political trends in Asia and how this could affect Myanmar’s development, as well as Myanmar’s economic and financial sector plans. The Forum aims to allow business leaders to better understand Myanmar’s domestic economic roadmap under the new National League of Democracy government, and also the broader picture of Myanmar’s economic developments in relation to geo-political trends in Asia and the world.

About the ASEAN-Myanmar Forum

The ASEAN-Myanmar Forum aims to serve as a high–level platform for corporate leaders and policy makers to discuss key issues relating to Myanmar’s developments. The SIIA’s first ASEAN-Myanmar Forum in 2015 brought together more than 200 foreign investors and Myanmar businesses and investors looking to expand into ASEAN. More than 50 per cent of the participants were made up of foreign business leaders from Asia, such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, who were interested to find out more about the direction of Myanmar’s next phase of growth and the development plans of its financial sector. Companies from Europe and the United States were also present. The first instalment featured high-level government representatives such as H.E U Soe Thane, Former Coordinating Minister for Economic Development, Ministry for President’s Office Myanmar; and various prominent MNCs and businesses such as Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), Yoma Strategic Holdings, the Charoen Pokphand (CP) Group, United Overseas Bank (UOB), and WongPartnership LLP.
