Occupying a strategic position at the crossroads of India, China and Thailand, and now in its seventh year of sweeping economic liberalisation and political transition, Myanmar remains one of the fastest-growing economies in South-east Asia.

The manufacturing sector absorbed foreign direct investments (FDIs) worth US$275.6 million through 19 projects in the past three months, according to statistics provided by the Myanmar Investment Commission (MIC). The MIC targets FDIs worth US$3 billion during the six-month interim period from April to September, prior to the next 2018-2019 fiscal year. The manufacturing and real estate development sectors are likely to maintain the top position in attracting FDIs during the six-month interim period.

“The country long-term economic outlook is positive, with rising investment in manufacturing, transportation, power and infrastructure expected to drive GDP and industrial growth,” said Mr Fraser Hawkes, General Manager, UBM Myanmar. “We are delighted to organise this MEGA show to serve the industries.
