Myanmar Investment Forum: Unlocking Myanmar’s Next Growth Chapter

05 Sep Myanmar Investment Forum: Unlocking Myanmar’s Next Growth Chapter

The National League for Democracy government has ushered in a new Myanmar defined by strong growth fundamentals and a renewed commitment to openness. However, recent spikes in ethnic tensions and the lack of a clear economic policy has created a climate of financial uncertainty, and economic development has slowed significantly.

Against this backdrop, Myanmar’s government has made concerted attempts to meet these challenges head-on. This conviction has most recently manifested itself in changes enshrined in the new Companies Law, which took effect 1 August 2018. Myanmar is still in need of sustainable investments to facilitate critical infrastructure, and its government is loudly signalling its willingness to work with investors to address any obstacles they might meet in engaging productively with its growing economy.

Jointly organised by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) and the Singapore Exchange (SGX), the Myanmar Investment Forum will discuss Myanmar’s current investment landscape, and how foreign companies can invest responsibly in Myanmar to ensure win-win development outcomes for a broader section of society. The SIIA invites C-suite executives and business leaders to better understand Myanmar’s present economic roadmap, and to engage in a high-level networking platform which will connect foreign investors interested in Myanmar to those with expertise in the country.
