Myanmar and ADB

In the Spotlight

Emerging from decades of economic and political isolation, Myanmar is striving for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. The country has strong potential for broad economic expansion, possessing abundant natural resources, a strategic location at the crossroads of Asia, a young population, and a sizable market with wide-ranging investment opportunities. Successful national elections, held in November 2015, represented an important milestone in Myanmar’s transition.

ADB operations in Myanmar are based on an interim country partnership strategy 2012-2016, which focuses on building human resources and capacity, creating an enabling economic environment, and expanding access and connectivity.
