Located at the crossroads between China, India and Southeast Asia, Myanmar’s political and economic reforms over the past two years have generated much interest from regional and global investors. In 2014, Singapore was Myanmar’s third largest foreign investor and Singapore companies have made significant inroads with projects across the real estate, construction, hospitality and services sectors.
 
The Myanmar government has been active in updating and modernising the country’s legal and economic framework to attract more foreign investments and create an environment conducive for sustainable economic development. The award of banking licenses to nine foreign banks, including two from Singapore, is one example of these efforts.
 
Join us at this Workshop to stay updated on Myanmar’s legal and tax frameworks governing foreign investments as well as understand the financing and profit repatriation options available.
