Myanmar

INTRODUCTION:

Further to considerable political and economic changes under way, Myanmar is going to have an important role among the South East Asia Countries. The Asian Development Bank estimates a possible 8%  growth on yearly basis and the per capita income could triple within 2030.

Thanks to the reforms carried through by the president Thein Sein, who took office in March 2011, last November among the others it was approved a new law for the foreign investments, and thanks to the easing of the trade restrictions and to the access to the private institutions, the way to the development of the huge potential of the country has been opened.

Under a more definite legislation, Myanmar is now representing a center of attraction for the investments, in a global economic framework, in three  main nerve centers: Yangon, Bagan e Mandalay.
