Myanmar Business Update

When: 10 November 2016

Where: The Fairmont Hotel and Swissotel The Stamford Level 4, 80 Bras Basah Rd, Singapore

Myanmar is expected to enjoy GDP growth of 7.8 percent this year and readily outpace its ASEAN neighbours in the years ahead. Yet foreign direct investment has dropped steeply this year in the wake of the watershed political transition as the new government builds capacity. Will there be renewed interest in 2017? How can companies best understand and capitalize on the significant changes happening in Myanmar’s investment environment?

  • What are the key risks and opportunities when operating in Myanmar at this stage?
  • How will the lifting of U.S. sanctions and the expected new landmark business and investment legislation affect investment?
  • What are the key regulatory challenges companies face in Myanmar and how can they mitigate them?

Experts from DFDL and Control Risks answered these questions and more during a closed-door breakfast discussion for a select group of key clients and associates.
