Country Report
The National Convention, which is to draft a new constitution ahead of eventual elections, has gone ahead without the participation of the opposition National League for Democracy. The unpromising start to the National Convention has implications for the speed at which multilateral institutions such as the IMF and the World Bank are likely to return to Myanmar. Energy and mining is one of the few areas in which there is a sizeable foreign investor presence in Myanmar given widespread political and corporate boycotts and limited opportunities.
