US lifts Myanmar international lending restriction- Boston.com, 10 October 2012


Myanmar is the new frontier for investments for the global oil, gas, infrastructure and a host of fast growing sectors. Riding on the new wave of optimism and opportunities thrown up by the new reforms minded government, foreign investments are poised to head towards Myanmar in the next few years.

With positive investment sentiments from the western countries following the lifting of sanctions, and multilateral agencies setting up bases, Myanmar is today well-positioned to revive its economy. Though concerns persist over inadequate financial & banking system, IPR and trademarks, tax regulations, land reforms, and FDI norms, Myanmar will remain a big bet for global investors.

New found opportunities in ICT and telecom, automotive, and construction, port and road development projects are high potential areas for global majors to ignore. Mining and mineral and farming sectors are also emerging as major attractions for foreign investment.

Yet, for many Myanmar still remain an enigma and an unknown frontier. CMT's 2nd New Myanmar Investment Summit aims to unfold the ground realities in Myanmar and address a host of complex issues that are vital for business environment. The summit will bring together on a single platform, top level Myanmar government officials, local & foreign experts, legal & finance advisors and senior representatives from global industry and investment firms.
