The IMF, which forecasts GDP growth will reach 3.3% in 2020, has noted that green shoots are beginning to emerge in the UAE, nourished by domestic credit growth and low unemployment figures. This is a sentiment that chimes with OBG’s assessment of the local market. The results of the latest Business Barometer: UAE CEO Survey reveal a generally upbeat and optimistic private sector, with 64% of respondents either positive or very positive about the country’s business environment over the next 12 months.

Myanmar’s ongoing transition from authoritarianism to democracy will reach its next milestone in 2020, when general elections will be held in union, state and regional legislatures. The polls will take place almost 10 years after the country began the gradual process of opening its economy to the world and granting democratic freedoms to a population that had lived under military rule for some five decades. After three years of a civilian-led government CEOs of local and international firms are generally positive about the shortterm prospects for growth and expansion, with 69% expressing a favourable opinion of business conditions.
