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
