Myanmar Roundtable 2012: Understanding the Changes, Realising the Opportunities

Date : 9 July 2012
Venue: Doubletree by Hilton, Kuala Lumpur
The Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS) Malaysia is organising the Myanmar Roundtable 2012 with the theme “Understanding the Changes, Realising the Opportunities”.
The recent suspension of sanctions by the US, EU and other countries have led to a common governmental advice to businesses in developed and developing countries alike to ‘Invest in Myanmar and do it responsibly’. This has signalled a heightened interest in investing in Myanmar in a variety of context and dimensions. Consequently, Myanmar is now on the radar screen of many governments and businesses.
This Roundtable aims to highlight recent political, economic and business developments in the ‘Golden Land’, touching on current trends and future directions as well as challenges and responses by a select group of Myanmese speakers, comprising of advisors, director general of planning, think tank directors, prominent and dynamic businessmen and a well-known Myanmar watcher. This line-up is probably the most distinguished assembled in Malaysia in recent times.
ISIS Malaysia is privileged in bringing together key personalities from Myanmar to talk at the above Roundtable. We are expecting 150 participants, consisting of corporate executives, government officials and Myanmar watchers. We believe the Roundtable can offer excellent networking opportunities and engagement due to its high-level speakers and participants.
This Roundtable is supported by CIMB Group Berhad and Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad.
