Myanmar - a land of opportunity
A key trade hub between China and India and flowing with untapped natural resources, Myanmar is the new cornucopia of Asia. It is a global leader of rice, soy, corn and other crops, lumber-rich forests cover half its area, its vast rivers and coastlines teem with fish and even the ground beneath is full of precious stones, oil and natural gas.
With recent sweeping political and economic reforms, Myanmar is finally reaching its full economic potential. It has never been easier nor more lucrative to invest.

  1. Sustaining agriculture development towards industrialization and all round development
  2. Balanced and proportionate development among states and regions
  3. Inclusive growth for entire population
