Myanmar 2.0 – Private Sector, the Engine of Economic Growth and Job Creation

In August 2018, the Ministry of Planning and Finance published the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (2018-2030). The government’s master plan for the development of the country provides a framework for coordination and cooperation across all ministries, states and regions. In short, the MSDP recognises the role of the private sector as the primary engine of economic growth and job creation and it prioritises market-based solutions. For investors, it is a useful guide to the government’s priorities and the opportunities that are likely to arise in the coming months and years.

11:00AM – 11:45AM
Speaker

H. E. U Set Aung, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Planning and Finance

National Project Bank Explained

With that includes a Project Bank that enables the government to prioritise key projects that will enable effective implementation of the MSDP. The address will also touch on key projects the Government plans to develop and how the Project Bank will function.

11:45AM – 12:45PM
A Private Sector Perspective – Attracting Foreign Investments to Myanmar
Presenters

  • Serge Pun @ U Theim Wai, Vice Chairman and CEO, New Yangon Development Company Limited
  • Vikram Kumar, Country Manager for Myanmar and Thailand, International Finance Corporation
  • Yuan Shaobin, the Executive President of CITIC Myanmar(Hong Kong) Holding Limited. and the Managing Director of CITIC Group (Myanmar) Co., Ltd.
  • Kunio Negishi, Chairman, Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Myanmar

Myanmar’s recent transition out of five decades of economic and political isolation provides an opportunity for the country to secure much needed investment to build basic infrastructure for its citizens and facilitate growth in its fast-growing sectors.

Such projects will require massive amounts of capital and specialised expertise, and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) will be an important source of capital, technology and knowledge in these endeavours.

Representatives from the International Finance Corporation, New Yangon Development Company Limited., CITIC Group (Myanmar) Co., Ltd., and Japan will provide a 360-degree perspective on the next steps for Myanmar to transform itself into an attractive FDI destination for foreign investors.

Moderated by Thiri Thant Mon, Country Representative Myanmar, CDC Group
