Subscribe and visit our web-page: http://www.us-television.tv/ ! Following a successful democratic political election in November 2015, Myanmar is busy preparing itself to make the political, economic, social and legal changes that will continue to ensure the sustainable development of its economy. Foreign participation has grown to unprecedented levels as international companies compete for investment opportunities in one of the newest and most promising economies of Asia. Introduction. Myanmar, also popularly known as Burma, has historical roots that stretch back into antiquity. Situated in South East Asia, at an intersection between India and China, it is a largely rural, thickly forested country. Famous for its Buddhist pagodas, it has become a place of pilgrimage for worshippers and tourists alike. On 8 November 2015, Myanmar held landmark elections to replace the civilian Government formed by the Military in 2011. The National League for Democracy (NLD), led by Aung San Suu Kyi, enjoyed a landslide success winning just under 80% of the seats in the upper and lower houses of parliament. As a consequence of its large majority, the NLD will be in a position to lead political and social reforms and also dominate the process for the election of a new President. An NLD Government demonstrates the progress that democracy has made in Myanmar since it opened its doors to the international community in 2011. The success of the national vote, which has seen the people of Myanmar choose their first democratically elected Government since the early 1960s, serves to further strengthen improving international political relations. Future political and legal reform is expected to continue its support for the growing influx of foreign investment into the country, which has seen a huge increase from US$329.6 million in 2009/2010 to US$8.1 billion in 2014/2015. But what really makes Myanmar such an attractive place to invest in? With a population estimated at 53.7 million in 2014, Myanmar has significant untapped agricultural potential and a rich endowment of natural resources in the form of oil, gas, minerals and a variety of precious gemstones. Myanmar is ideally situated to take advantage of the large export markets of India and China. It is also a member and was the chair country in 2014 of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) trading bloc. ASEAN includes some of the fastest growing economies in the World. Agriculture. The cornerstone of the Myanmar economy is agriculture. It contributes between 30 to 40% of the gross domestic product. Up to 70% of the 32.5 million national workforce is engaged in agricultural activity or depends upon agriculture for their income. Furthermore, agricultural products generate roughly 25 to 30% of export earnings. Myanmar’s diverse topography, climates, water resources and ecosystems offer farmers and investors the opportunity to produce a wide range of crops, livestock, poultry and fish. Rice is currently the most important agricultural commodity and the majority of production is centred upon the Irrawaddy river delta. Paddy rice feeds the country and also represents the main export crop. Sugar cane, cotton and pulses are other important contributors to the success of the agricultural sector. The production and processing of these commodities was until recently controlled by state owned organisations. However, in an effort to develop foreign participation and increase local production, these industries have been liberalised. The government now has high hopes that foreign investment will increase in the agriculture sector. Although the Government provides valuable capital for agricultural production, foreign investment is also crucial to make up for capital shortfalls and to help farmers avoid alternative capital funding that can carry extremely high interest rates. Despite the importance of the agricultural sector to Myanmar, it has not historically attracted high levels of foreign investment. This situation is slowly changing, but the need for international investors to upgrade infrastructure and research and development is high.

To join the Elite Investor Club, head over to http://eliteinvestorclub.com/ It was back in two thousand and one that Goldman Sachs coined the term BRIC for the emerging markets of Brazil, Russia, India and China. The Global Investment bank predicted Brazil and Russia would become the dominant global suppliers of raw materials while India and China would become the similarly dominant suppliers of goods and services. China had already demonstrated huge potential in the early nineteen nineties when its annual growth hit a still unbeaten fifteen point four percent and after a brief dip into single figures around the millennium, growth figures continued to march upwards until the global recession hit. One of the key attributes that makes China so popular from an investors point of view is its consistent growth which has been fuelled by government funded “mega” infrastructure projects, a booming property market, exponential manufacturing output and raw commodity exports. Instead of buying Belinda Carlisle and Phil Collins LPs back in nineteen eighty nine, if you’d have invested your savings into China, you would have received annual average growth of almost ten percent per year. By the powers of compound growth, a ten grand investment back then would have netted you over one hundred and thirty thousand pounds if you sold up today. And whilst there’s been a lot of talk in recent years that China’s boom is now over, growth still sits above six point five percent per year. A figure that any western country would give their right arm for. But as with any emerging economy there’s always a downside. China’s economy has been built on investment and that means that many companies and even state owned enterprises are overexposed to debt. The country’s debt has ballooned to almost two hundred and fifty per cent of GDP thanks to Beijing’s repeated use of cheap credit to stimulate slowing growth over the last few years, unleashing a massive, debt-fuelled spending binge. For Chinese banks that have loaned to fellow compatriots, the quality of debt is also a problem. It’s estimated that as much as twenty percent of it could be made up of non-performing loans. If all of that debt were to be officially written off, a western style two thousand and eight style banking crisis could be on the cards. China’s economy then is like its food. Both sweet and sour. The big question for China now is can it grow its way out of debt through the adoption of new technologies and emerging industries like renewables or will the weight of its debt turn it into a giant economic sinking ship? China is not the only Asian economy to be marching forward. Myanmar, its little known neighbour with a fledgling economy, is on target to become the fastest growing economy in the world in percentage terms for twenty sixteen. Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar is a true emerging market in every sense. Under military rule for the last half of the 20th century and the early part of this millennium, the country recently held its first free and open elections. With a smooth transition of power and a progressive government now in place, the US has made the decision to start lifting economic sanctions on the country and Myanmar has announced itself open for business. In two thousand and fifteen the country opened its own stock market even though it didn’t have any companies ready for listing at the time. Today they have just three on the books and that gives you an indication of how immature the country’s economy still is. It’s not just the size of the economy which makes it immature, it’s the legal and regulatory side of business and finance which is only just beginning to be laid out. Anyone entering Myanmar to set up shop or invest in local business needs to be comfortable with the highest levels of risk and many investors are choosing to hold fire and wait for more regulations to be put in place before they take the plunge. It’s clear though that the government is moving in the right direction and understands the need for foreign investment to fund not just local and national businesses, but major infrastructure projects which are essential if Myanmar is to build on its early stage growth. If you’re the kind of person that’s always looking to get in at the very beginning of the next big thing. Myanmar, with its fledgling government, economy and infrastructure might just be for you. But with so many unknowns and the pace of progress yet to be seen, if you think you’re in for an easy ride on this one, be very careful out there.

Along the muddy river bank hundreds of men pack down under small plastic sheets to avoid the direct sun and to take respite from the 38 degree heat. The men cram into the small bamboo shops beside the muddy river. The valley and river littered with generators and large hoses that the miners use in their hunt for gold. It is Sunday and the workers are having a break from work. In this remote area of Karen State almost everything is available -- phone calls, money transfers, food, clothing, alcohol, electronics, machinery and there is even the Internet. Thousands of people from all over Burma flood into the Baw Lu stream that links to Tenasserim River, in Southern Burma, to seek their fortunes from digging gold...
