[New!] Myanmar In Focus : Investment Law (half day)

Myanmar is opening up more ways for inflow of foreign investment and has significantly relaxed certain restrictions sought to protect its domestic market. Many investors, however, may not be fully aware of the new ways and areas of investing in Myanmar under the new regulatory regime introduced by the new Myanmar Companies laws in August 2018.


This half day workshop aims to provide guidance to companies and businesses considering venturing into Myanmar to explore new options available when they enter into this new frontier. This would be an interesting and interactive session for the companies to engage in deep discussion on real issues, challenging obstacles that they may come across in doing business with the locals.

Programme Outline

1. Myanmar's investment laws and new changes to the retail and wholesale landscape
2. Significant changes under new Myanmar Companies Act
3. Strategies and tools to safeguard foreign investors under the new company law regime
4. Looking beyond the legal aspects - sharing of real business cases and experiences of doing businesses in Myanmar

Who Should Attend 

Senior or middle management staff of local businesses looking to venture into Myanmar as their next potential market expansion
