1 March 2014 - Myamar's Minister of National Planning and Economic Development, Dr. Kan Zaw officially launched the Myanmar Investment Policy Review in Nay Pyi Taw. The launch was followed by a detailed presentation of the findings at a conference in Yangon on 4 March.
The Myanmar government, in partnership with the OECD and ASEAN, has undertaken a review of its investment policies as part of an active programme of investment policy reforms to make the country a more attractive destination for investors.
Myanmar has already addressed shortcomings in its investment regime and this review enables the government to assess its economic and investment policies and identify priorities for further reform.
This review, one of the first international initiatives carried out by the Myanmar government in the area of investment policy, took place within the framework of the ASEAN-OECD Investment Programme.
“In our due diligence, we are asked to look at challenges and gaps…which are well documented in the OECD report. I recommend this report to everybody because our experience…is very confirming of the findings. It is a very good study.”
