Asian Development Bank and Myanmar: Fact Sheet

ADB supports Myanmar in promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, with focus on infrastructure, education and training, and rural development.

While Myanmar has made progress in laying the building blocks for an inclusive market economy and improved livelihoods, significant challenges remain. ADB is helping the government by supporting macroeconomic policy reforms, accelerating human capital development, and developing suitable infrastructure projects.

Future ADB operations will address the strategic areas of infrastructure connectivity, human capital and capacities, and reform. Investments will improve the inclusiveness of Myanmar’s growth by focusing on the priority areas of infrastructure (energy, transport, and urban and water services), education and training, and rural development. Capacity development, regional cooperation and integration, and private sector development will remain priorities.

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.
