Myanmar at a Critical Juncture

02 Aug Myanmar at a Critical Juncture

The National League for Democracy (NLD) government is half-way through its term. Myanmar stands at a critical juncture where the government needs to start delivering on its election promises and bring about tangible change to the country. Otherwise, Aung San Suu Kyi and her party risk losing the public’s trust in their ability to build a new Myanmar.

To gain a deeper perspective on the new government’s plans for economic development and private sector concerns, SIIA Chairman Prof. Simon Tay met with several government officials, policy-makers and business leaders in Yangon and Nay Pyi Taw this past June and July. These included H.E. U Win Khaing, Minister of Construction, Republic of the Union of Myanmar; H.E. U Tun Tun Oo, Union Attorney General, Republic of the Union of Myanmar; Dr. Sean Turnell, Economic Advisor, State Counsellor’s Office, Republic of the Union of Myanmar; U Win Aung, Founder and CEO, Dagon International Limited.

Join him for a candid and informal closed-door session to hear his insights on recent developments in Myanmar. This session will also include salient insights gained from the recently concluded 2nd ASEAN-Myanmar Forum that was held in Yangon on 28 June.
