About the event

It's impossible to ignore the game-changing economic, political and social transformations sweeping Myanmar today. With a young population of 55 million and abundant natural resources, Myanmar is the Golden Land. Change is happening rapidly there.  The US and European Union have begun to lift long held sanctions on foreign investment into the country.  Equally important, Myanmar is opening up to the world.

There are immense opportunities for Malaysian investors in Myanmar.  But as always there are challenges to investing in an emerging market.

This event brought a group of eminent speakers to share key developments, outlook and practical guidance for doing business in Myanmar.
