Myanmar | Military coup threatens economic recovery

On February 1, Myanmar’s military seized control of the country, announcing a one-year state of emergency and the replacement of democratically elected President Win Myint with Myint Swe, a former general. State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint, and other senior members of the elected government’s National League for Democracy (NDL) were also detained.

What you will learn from this report:

  • Political risk and business uncertainties likely to see recovery in investment and FDI stall. 
  • An added risk to the export outlook is that the military coup leads to US and EU sanctions.
  • Medium-term growth could be lower if the reform agenda is put on the back-burner.
