Myanmar’s changing landscape - Environmental project approvals 

In 2011, Myanmar embarked on a series of political and regulatory changes, ultimately leading to the formal adoption of a market economy. As a result of this, foreign direct investment has increased by 160% in 2013 alone.

As part of this transition to an open economy and the conditions attached to foreign investment, a comprehensive regulatory overhaul has begun. As a result, environmental laws have been revised with the aim of increasing transparency and accountability.

To guide you through these changes, we’ve developed this client insight exploring Myanmar’s changing environmental landscape and what this means for foreign investors.
