Myanmar has emerged in the last 12 months as one of the world’s most promising markets. With a population of around 60 million and a strategically advantageous geographical location, the country presents significant opportunities across a broad range of sectors. However, like any country with a developing economy, one of the most important building blocks for its development will be access to power. Without power, industry will stagnate, and the economy will clearly not reach its potential. Please join Mayer Brown lawyers Nathan Dodd and Ben Thompson as they discuss the role that project finance will likely play in the development of Myanmar’s power sector, as well as the challenges Myanmar is facing in attracting international project finance.
