Emerging countries are increasingly capturing global attention due to the burgeoning opportunities they present unlike most developed nations, which are grappling with economic challenges. Myanmar has been witnessing a rise in international interest and business opportunities since the initiation of political and economic reforms in 2011. In addition to these reforms, Myanmar enjoys a strategic geographic position; it is well cushioned between emerging giants like China and India. All eyes are on Myanmar as the chair of the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) in 2014, which will be critical to the establishment of the AEC (ASEAN Economic Community) by 2015.

This analyst briefing will provide an overview of Myanmar's economy and delve into Mega Trends pertinent to the country. This will be followed by executive insights on key growth industries in Myanmar.

Participate in this briefing to understand the growth prospects and opportunities in emerging markets with a special focus on Myanmar. The briefing will cover imminent Myanmar Mega Trends and opportunities in crucial growth industries of the country. Concluding the presentation with a section on key investment opportunities, our experts will host a live question-and-answer session.
