CMT’s 3rd Myanmar Investment Summit unravels the land of opportunities
Posted on : 28 Nov, 2012
Myanmar continues to draw global investor attention as it opens up new business structures for partnering in core sectors such as Oil and Gas, Mining, Power markets, ICT Telecoms and Agriculture.
Recent visit by Mr. Barack Obama, US President, has affirmed global attention on this newly emerging frontier in South East Asia. Besides gaining global approval as a safe investment hub, the development is expected to fuel US investments in key sectors of Myanmar’s economy, a move which will drive further other nations to follow suit.
With reforms on a fast track, investors continue to seek opportunities to assess and understand the economic and market granularities. Clearly, there is a need to unravel the black box and enable investors to assess ground realities.
CMT’s NEW Myanmar Investment Summit 2013 opens up the perfect window for investors to take a reality check on Myanmar’s new foreign investment law, implementation guidelines, partnering models. It offers a bespoke opportunity for all stakeholders to move to the next level of engagement with Myanmar.
