Myanmar CEOs surveyed on investment sentiment

Government efforts to open up the economy and stimulate private sector development appear to have made a good impression on the majority of executives who participated in the Business Barometer: Myanmar CEO Survey. Of the 100 respondents, 77% indicated that their firm intends to make a significant capital investment in 2019, while 64% have positive or very positive expectations of local business conditions. Despite these sentiments, however, access to credit remains a perennial problem, with 83% describing it as difficult or very difficult. Additionally, business executives indicated a lack of leadership skills and infrastructure as constraints to further economic growth.
