Investment Planning Seminar: Myanmar, Cambodia, and the Lao PDR | 16 March 2018 | Bangkok

DFDL’s regional tax team came together in Bangkok on 16 March 2018 for an engaging seminar on the topic “Investment Planning Seminar: Myanmar, Cambodia and the Lao PDR”. The engaging session proved very useful indeed for those in attendance, with the speakers discussing multijurisdictional tax developments across Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, and the Lao PDR. The speakers at this event were Jack Sheehan (Partner and Head of the Regional Tax Practice), Jonathan Blaine (Thailand Tax Director), Borapyn Py (Associate Tax Director Cambodia) and Diberjohn Balinas (Tax Manager).


The Greater Mekong region is booming and continues to enjoy some of the highest growth rates in South East Asia. Investing into these countries can be perilous without due consideration.

In this seminar, DFDL will outline the latest developments and provide practical advice on the most effective ways of investing and doing business in these countries.

We will explain in detail how to optimally structure investments into Myanmar, Cambodia, and the Lao PDR in a tax-efficient manner, from both an international and Thai perspective. Our dedicated tax professionals will share their own firsthand experiences of the practicalities, complexities and pitfalls when investing in these countries, many of which are not always clearly apparent in the local laws and regulations.

This event will feature analysis on real-life case studies of cross-border transactions between Myanmar, Cambodia, the Lao PDR and Thailand, taking into account recent developments in the realm of taxation such as DTAs, some of which have only recently come into force, and changes in local tax laws.

Our senior tax experts all operate extensively in the countries under discussion at this half-day event, each equipped with comprehensive knowledge of the commercial realities that take hold when doing business in the Mekong region.

This is a must-attend event for anyone actively doing business or contemplating an investment in Myanmar, Cambodia and the Lao PDR.
