About the product
Myanmar is emerging from isolation as it implements reforms and faces fewer sanctions. The country has great potential for rapid development due to its vast natural resources, abundant labour force and geostrategic location. To assist efforts, ESCAP and OECD conducted a multidimensional policy review of Myanmar with the government. Lack of information on business conditions was found to be an impediment to the development of appropriate polices. A joint business survey with the Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry was conducted, providing a rich dataset of 3,000 firms in all sectors and regions to help understand the challenges they face. This publication explores the results, in order to develop policies that promote private sector development.
