Asia’s last frontier

Myanmar investment outreach forum to be organized in New York

Date:September 24

The Myanmar Investment and Tourism Forum is a unique chance to learn about opportunities in Myanmar – Asia’s last frontier.

This is an exciting time for Myanmar. For decades a “closed world,” Myanmar is now firmly on the radar for many Western companies, with some even calling it “The Final Frontier”. The transformation now under way in this once military-ruled nation has sparked the interest of investors around the world.

Last year President U Thein Sein met with President Barack Obama at the White House during what was the first working visit to the United States by a Myanmar president in nearly 50 years. Also in 2013, the country hosted the World Economic Forum, to enormous international acclaim, and the Southeast Asia games. And this year Myanmar took over as Chair of ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

The Myanmar Investment and Tourism Forum now being organized by Peninsula Press will bring together senior members of Myanmar’s state and federal governments and some 200 C-level executives from national and multinational companies sectors such as banking and finance, manufacturing, heavy industry, ICT, logistics, energy, tourism and infrastructure development.

Speakers will discuss the ongoing reform process and identify sectors and projects likely to offer the best opportunities going forward. HRMR's Lead Director, Eric Rose, will be the Moderator of the main panel which will include, among others, U Soe Thane, the Minister in charge of Myanmar's economy, and major investors George Soros and Serge Pun.
