The Phase III report of the Multi-dimensional Review (MDCR) of Myanmar: From Analysis to Action outlines actions for transforming Myanmar’s agricultural sector into an engine for growth and prosperity. Developed through participatory policy dialogues between the OECD, including the OECD Development Centre, and Myanmar stakeholders, participants built on recommendations for structural transformation from the MDCR’s first two reports to focus specifically on the agriculture and agri-food sectors. The report outlines how investing in the agriculture and agri-food sectors can help Myanmar move up value chains to produce high-quality products for export. It identifies six keys areas that include specific detailed actions and reforms for implementation.

The report will be presented to the government of Myanmar in Nay Pyi Taw on Wednesday, 22 June 2016.


The main results of the report will be presented by Jan Rielaender, Head of the OECD Development Centre Multi-dimensional Country Reviews Unitwiththe honourable participation of:
