23 October 2013 – Rome, Italy
This event aimed to highlight the complex transformation taking place in Myanmar and analyse the challenges that the country is addressing in order to achieve strong, sustainable growth.
A highlight of the meeting was a technical panel on the economic and social aspects of investment in Myanmar, with a specific focus on the country's new investment law and its link to the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. These Guidelines aim to encourage and maximise the positive impact that MNEs can make to sustainable development and enduring social progress.
The Conference was organised by the Italian government, in collaboration with the OECD and the Osservatorio Asia.
