On January 23, AMCHAM Myanmar organized a briefing of the most recent Myanmar Business Survey conducted by European consulting firm, Roland Berger. Principal, Dieter Billen, presented key findings of the survey.
While overall business confidence has dropped since 2016, half of those surveyed still believe that the Myanmar business landscape will improve. “Lack of trained staff” was named as the most critical challenge companies face in the Myanmar business environment, with “no clear government economic policy” coming in a close second.
Overall, respondents indicated that their reasons for initially entering the market still exist today and 77% of companies plan to expand their operations in Myanmar over the next year. A copy of the presentation can be found here, and a copy of the full report can be downloaded here.
