Publication | April 2014

Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Myanmar as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.

Myanmar joined ADB in 1973. Prior to 2013, ADB’s last loan projects for Myanmar were approved in 1986. Since the general elections in 2010, Myanmar has undertaken significant political and economic reforms. In 2012, ADB developed a road map toward resumption of normal operations, with initial assessments of the economy and key sectors, provision of technical assistance projects, and development of an interim country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012–2014.

In 2013, ADB approved 14 technical assistance projects (including supplementary financing for an ongoing technical assistance project), with $6.7 million of ADB resources and $12.6 million of cofinancing.
