‘Myanmar continues to progress down the long path towards political and economic development, solidifying our feelings that the country's recent awakening is the 'real deal.' While the past year and a half has not been without its pitfalls and unforeseen challenges, we note that, more importantly, Myanmar's leadership appears to be dedicated to maintaining the country's strong reform momentum. Concurrently, the military has retained a relatively low profile, allowing Myanmar's young democracy to adopt a series of crucial economic reforms and shifting fears of a return to direct authoritarian rule further towards the backburner.’
Business Monitor International (BMI), has just published a brand new special report, Myanmar: From Promise to Profits, where we examine whether Myanmar’s emerging investment story has lived up to its early promise and which sectors are likely to prove the most attractive to investors over the long-term.
The report identifies the potential rewards on offer in Myanmar, one of the hottest frontier markets in the world today and the key challenges to doing business there. It also examines the sectors that are likely to out-perform, with close examination of the agribusiness, automotives, infrastructure, mining, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, power, shipping, and telecoms sectors.
The granularity of our analysis, data, and project information makes this report one of the most exhaustive cross-examinations of Myanmar's near- and long-term prospects in the market today.
