The political, economic and social impacts of recent events in Myanmar present significant challenges to foreign and local business. Some investment initiatives have been put on hold and some companies have closed or exited. Many other companies are constrained in their operations and are considering their options for continuing their business. However, many of the fundamental factors that have made Myanmar an attractive investment destination remain in place. While those factors may be somewhat less accessible in the short term, there is still strong potential for Myanmar to reward patient investors over the medium to long term.
