The New Burma/Myanmar Investment and Trade Summit

A Practical Guide for UK Companies

27th September 2012
Prospero House, London

Following the suspension of sanctions by the EU and the easing of sanctions in the US, there are clear signs that Burma/Myanmar is actively taking steps to ensure that the country is re-admitted into the international community. At the end of August Myanmar’s President Thein Sein, consolidated progress for his reform agenda by elevating four reform-minded ministers in a reshuffle of his 29-member cabinet. These changes came after moves to abolish Myanmar’s media censorship system.

The reform agenda being followed in Myanmar/Burma offers a real opportunity for British companies looking for investment opportunities in the ASEAN region. High-profile investor Jim Rogers recently said that Myanmar/Burma was “probably the best investment opportunity in the world right now”, comparing it to China when it opened up in 1978.

To be successful a firm will need to have a good understanding of the business, economic and political situation in Burma/Myanmar. Planning your market entry in a comprehensive manner is the key to success in a country that is undergoing radical and rapid reform.

The Myanmar-Britain Business Association is supporting The New Burma/Myanmar Investment and Trade Summit in Central London on 27th September 2012.

The event is also supported by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and the UK-ASEAN Business Council.
