With the ADB bullish on Myanmar's economic prospects, the country's construction sector is set to boom. From ground level up and across the country from Yangon to Bago to Mandalay and neighboring towns, extensive infrastructures projects are being planned.
New roads and highways, upgrading rail track and rolling stock, elevated telecoms base tower stations, power plants, deep sea ports, airports and Thilawa SEZ's industrial estates and other key sites are attracting investments and capital and expertise from Japan, Korea, Europe and ASEAN neighbors.
To meet the rising construction needs - JVs and business relationships between foreign and local companies are growing to develop not only new hotels, residential, commercial buildings but also to restore the world's highest number of heritage buildings as well as ministry buildings left behind when the government relocated to Naypyidaw.
Yangon City is set to undergo a major revamp, with the strategic urban development themed Yangon 2040, A City of Green and Gold". This urban development includes the New Myanmar Building Code for High-Rise Buildings in Yangon, as well as efforts to conserve and restore Myanmar's unique heritage buildings with a new lease of life.
Against such a background... Cost effective sourcing and logistics of construction materials (cement, sand, glass, steel, etc) and heavy equipment, as well as securing skilled and unskilled manpower are critical challenges for regional and local contractors and project developers in Myanmar. On-site management, minimal delays and variations are vital concerns for a country that is in an accelerated pace to expand and expedite multiple projects simultaneously... If you are involved or keen to seek opportunities or cementing partnerships in constructing Myanmar, attendance at this summit will be invaluable.

The total investment in Myanmar’s construction sector by foreign companies has already exceeded USD 37 million (Ks 36.03 billion).
Singapore is the sixth biggest investor in Myanmar and to date Singapore has invested in about 90 projects in the country. The 2 latest Singapore companies to invest in Myanmar are Wood Craft International and Uni Global Power.
The two companies will invest in the country’s wood-based industries and construction sectors in a joint venture with local Myanmar counterparts – Myanmar's Global Star and Nature Link. This partnership is aimed at producing finished wood products and invest in infrastructural development projects including hotels, apartments, offices, city marts in the country. The joint venture will function on the build-operate-transfer (BOT) model.
Apart from Singapore, this year the Myanmar Investment Commission has approved proposals by companies from other countries including the United Arab Emirates for construction sector projects such as hotels, office apartments and office buildings. Recent reports indicate that Thailand’s largest specialty chemicals company, Sika, is also eyeing to invest in the booming construction sector of Myanmar. Myanmar’s Directorate of Investment and Companies Administration (DICA) has already approved Sika’s proposal to open a branch office in Myanmar in early October 2013.
