In recent years trade and investment in Myanmar have soared, buoyed by ongoing efforts to liberalise the economy and a successful political transition in November 2015 that saw the country’s first civilian-led government elected to power in modern history. Political reforms have brought significant economic benefits and with a host of domestic reforms, sustained growth is expected. While the country still faces challenges, including a transport infrastructure deficit and a lack of reliable electricity supply, it is seen as a destination of opportunity, and international investment is expected to remain strong in the coming years.

This is down to a combination of factors, including monetary policy stability, significant public investment in infrastructure and, more recently, a recovery in both the agriculture and mining sectors. While there are some headwinds that risk slowing this growth – including low financial intermediation rates, income inequality and a continued dependence on raw commodity exports – Côte d’Ivoire appears to have so far avoided the slowdown that has affected many other economies in the region.
