Only six years sets this second OECD Investment Policy Reviews: Myanmar apart from
the first review published in 2014, but much progress has occurred in investment policies
and related areas in Myanmar in the interim. Nonetheless, the reform momentum needs
to be sustained and deepened for the benefits of recent investment climate reforms
to be shared widely and for growth to be environmentally sustainable, ultimately contributing
toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This second review takes stock of
recent achievements and assesses remaining challenges in selected policy areas for
nurturing an enabling responsible business environment and ensuring benefits are shared
with society at large. It places strong emphasis on impact and on how foreign investment
can help Myanmar achieve the SDGs and improve the lives of the people of Myanmar.

This can include investment policy, investment promotion and facilitation, competition, trade, taxation, corporate governance, finance, infrastructure, developing human resources, policies to promote responsible business conduct, investment in support of green growth, and broader issues of public governance.
