Hot on the heels of our other two series which dealt with aviation and restructuring & insolvency, DFDL is proud to unveil the next Q&A series, this time on Real Estate and Banking & Finance issues throughout Southeast and South Asia.

The first edition will focus on Myanmar. This Q&A edition takes into consideration the Myanmar Government’s COVID-19 Economic Relief Plan (“CERP”) issued in April 2020 and how it affects banks, financial institutions and the real estate market. The extent to which securities may be granted to foreign investors in Myanmar over property (mortgages, charges etc.), the necessary processes, transferability of assets and debt-to-equity restrictions among many others are all outlined in a matter-of-fact and straight forward manner in this Q&A edition.
