Why you should attend


Myanmar, branded by the International Monetary Fund as Asia’s ‘final frontier’ has a population of 60 million and a growing GDP per capita at 7 to 8% annually. The consumer market is relatively young and offers great potential for suppliers of basic goods and services. The country’s attractive geographical location connects it with China, India, Bangladesh and the ASEAN members of Thailand and Laos, providing access to a market of approximately three billion people.


In a move to expand the potential opportunities for foreign investors, the list of activities a foreign investor is allowed

to carry out only under a joint venture (“JV”) with a Myanmar citizen or company, has been cut significantly. Attend this seminar to find out which sectors are affected and how it spells potential opportunity for investors and companies.


Who should Participate

Companies from the following sectors are strongly encouraged to participate:


Banking   • Real Estate   • Energy & Resources (Petroleum Products)   • Manufacturing (Packaging & Pharma)              

Health care services, nursing homes & hospitals Urban Development (Ports, Roads and Rails)
