Transport & Logistics

Myanmar Transport & Logistics

As the largest country in mainland South-east Asia, and sharing borders with around 40% of the world’s population, Myanmar holds enormous potential to become a regional transport and logistics hub. However, the country suffers from a notable infrastructure deficit. Although several major highway projects have been completed, much of the road network is in need of upgrades, while the national rail network, the largest in ASEAN by kilometres of track, continues to suffer from poor maintenance and underinvestment. With a sizeable amount of funding needed to close its infrastructure gap, officials are working with international lenders and bilateral partners to finance new transport projects. An increasing emphasis on public-private partnerships (PPPs) is offering additional opportunities to private and foreign investors. This chapter contains interviews with U Thant Sin Maung, Union Minister, Ministry of Transport and Communications; U Htun Myint Naing, Chairman, Asia World; and Chen Bo, General Manager, China Road and Bridge Corporation.
