How Can Myanmar Avoid the Resource Curse?


Register for this Event  

Myanmar’s abundant natural resources have served as the country’s main export revenue, but have also been a primary driver of conflict in ethnic areas. The launch of Myanmar’s first Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) report and related findings on Myanmar’s jade mining and state-owned enterprises make a compelling case for significant reform of this sector. What should the newly elected National League for Democracy (NLD) government do to improve the governance of resource wealth in the country, and how can the international community assist?

Please join a panel of experts for a conversation on the ongoing governance challenges in Myanmar’s extractives industries sector and reform options that can contribute to sustainable, inclusive development in Myanmar. Carnegie’s Vikram Nehru will moderate.
