Publication: Business and Development in Myanmar: A Policy Handbook for Private Sector Development

We are pleased to announce the publication, Business and Development in Myanmar: A Policy Handbook for Private Sector Development, prepared by the Trade and investment Division of UN-ESCAP, authored by Kamile Puusaag, David Abonyi and Masato Abe. The central purpose of the publication is to provide policymakers, business communities, development organizations, and other interested parties with a thorough overview of the private sector environment in Myanmar today. The publication outlines the challenges faced by businesses in Myanmar, elaborates on the nature of the challenges and why they are significant, and offers a set of recommendations to improve the business environment in order to foster greater development of the private sector, and indeed, the country as a whole.
This publication is an output of the Myanmar Business and Development Week, which was jointly organized by the ESCAP Secretariat, the ESCAP Business Advisory Council, the United Nations Inter-Agency Cluster on Trade and Productive Capacity, and the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Yangon, Myanmar, from 23 to 27 September 2013.
