Following the historic Aung San Suu Kyi visit to the UK and Europe, the suspension of sanctions by the EU and the easing of sanctions by the US it is clear that Burma/Myanmar is re-entering the international business community.
High-profile investor Jim Rogers recently said that Myanmar/Burma was "probably the best investment opportunity in the world right now", comparing it to China when it opened up in 1978.
A blue chip British delegation on a recent trip included Anglo American, BP, British Gas, Ernst & Young, Rolls Royce and Shell. One key conclusion was of an urgent need for massive investment in all aspects of infrastructure. British Industry shouldn’t miss this opportunity.
To meet this need, City & Financial, with the support of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and the UK-ASEAN Business Council, is organising The New Burma Investment and Trade Summit in Central London on 27th September 2012. The Myanmar-Britain Business Association is also supporting the event.
The Summit has been tailored to provide delegates with practical information about doing business in Burma/Myanmar. It will also offer a platform for networking with other UK companies that are likely to be at the forefront in tendering for major contracts.
