Legal Aspects of Doing Business in Myanmar Seminar, 3 June 2013 (Singapore)


Legal Aspects of Doing Business in Myanmar

3 June  2013 – Singapore

Myanmar now allows foreigners to establish fully owned firms and offers tax exemptions and long-term land leases to investors after passing the new Foreign Investment Law in 2012. The new legislation is a bid to attract foreign capital and fuel economic development. The country’s liberalization of its state controlled economy will certainly bring vast opportunities for foreign investors, however, challenges still remain. Thus, it is necessary for prospective investors to have comprehensive information on legal issues, taxation and corporate structure to help them embark on a successful and lucrative venture in Myanmar. This one-day seminar conducted by a panel of experts from DFDL delivered critical knowledge to leading industry experts, financial institutions and companies regarding foreign investment policies and strategies for carrying out business in Myanmar. 

Speakers included:

William D. Greenlee, Jr., Partner; Deputy Managing Director, Myanmar, Head of China Desk

Jack Sheehan, Regional Partner, Tax Practice Group

Domenico Ferrari, Senior Associate; Head of Energy, Mining & Infrastructure Practice Group, Singapore


When: 3 June 2013, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

Where: Shentrom Room at Basement 1, M Hotel, Singapore

Cost: S$743.65
