Myanmar Awakens: Unearthing Asia's Hidden Gem

Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) April 05, 2012 -- "Myanmar's latest political and economic awakening appears to be the 'real deal' and - as with any 'new' investment story - foreign interest is likely to reach fever pitch in the coming years. As seen in other resource-rich frontier markets, we expect a number of key sectors to dominate investor attention in the short to long term."

Business Monitor International (BMI) has just published 'Myanmar Awakens: Unearthing Asia's Hidden Gem', a brand new special report that examines the economic growth prospects for Myanmar as a resource-rich frontier market in the medium to long term. http://bharatbook.com/market-research-reports/oil-and-gas-market-research-report/myanmar-awakens-unearthing-asias-hidden-gem.html

Use BMI's core views on Myanmar's country and industry development to enhance your investment decision-making and strategic planning activities, assessing key questions such as:

* Will a fair and transparent electoral process in Myanmar pave the way for relaxation of the US and EU economic sanctions?

* With soaring economic prospects forecast for Myanmar as a result of its ongoing reform drive, how will China's interests be affected?

* Will foreign investment prevail in the short or long-term given the history of poor market accessibility?

* Will heavy investment in Myanmar's real estate market offer sufficient liquidity to entice an international audience and what will be the key barriers to overcome?

* Which key sectors will be the main outperformers for Myanmar in the short term?

* Which key sectors will be most promising in the long term?

Market Basket Analysis

The special report draws on BMI's 27 years of experience to critically assess the greatest economic and political risks for Myanmar in the years to come, helping you assess the opportunities and challenges for your business in 2012 and beyond.
