NEW DOOR FOR FDI MAY OPEN
Source: Myanmar Times - (28/08/2013)

Topics: FDI in Myanmar      Law

Last week’s article (“Still too early for private equity firms”), analysed one of the most controversial aspects of the Myanmar legal system: Foreigners cannot acquire shares in local companies and as a result locals are not allowed to transfer shares to foreigners in a 100 percent locally owned entity. We also suggested that it would be very important for the national economy to remove this restriction and allow foreign investors to inject capital in existing small and medium...

Kachin can become one of the key states to help Myanmar accelerate its economic growth.

But plagued with civil unrest, the state with a population of 1.6 million has instead fallen...

Topics: Business      Telecommunications

Myanmar, Indian businesses may need to stay sharp, perhaps more than play sharp. The World Economic Forum meeting this past June in Myanmar’s capital Nay Pyi Taw may have been prophetic about its concern over what some in media described as “greedy land grabbing and displacement, especially in ethnic areas with tentative and fragile peace processes”. This thought, attributed to David Mathieson, a senior Myanmar researcher with New York-based Human Rights Watch, appears realistic given the...
