deposits, spatial dimensions, location between China, India, Southeast Asia.”
-Craig Steffensen, Asian Development Bank
Stay up to date with recent developments
Myanmar is currently undergoing massive changes. New laws, regulations, and opportunities appear almost every day. As a smart investor, you’ll need to keep up with what’s happening. The Myanmar Investment Guide contains only the most up-to-date information – I constantly update it in order to stay on top of the rapid changes occurring today.
Although newspapers and journals are improving their coverage, most don’t provide investors with context about the news they report. The Myanmar Investment Guide was written to give you current, relevant information, that helps you understand the ‘big picture’ of what is going on inside the country.
Also Included: The Myanmar Language Business Phrasebook
Worried about the language barrier?
One of the trickiest parts about doing business in another country is tackling the language barrier. Although the level of English in the country is improving, there are definitely situations where speaking in Myanmar is beneficial. I wrote the Myanmar Language Business Phrasebook in order to help you handle business situations and build rapport with your Myanmar colleagues. The phrasebook is not an exhaustive grammar book filled with hours of boring rules and difficult vocabulary – it’s a short book that you can use instantly and effectively to help you communicate better. The phrasebook includes:
- Greetings and salutations
- Negotiating in Myanmar
- Speaking on the phone
- Handling meetings
- Making small talk

New to Myanmar culture?
Old World War II era buses, men not wearing pants, red betel nut juice everywhere, thanaka on cheeks, golden pagodas on nearly every hilltop. Myanmar is one of the most fascinating countries on the planet. Because of its long term isolation, it has developed a unique culture which affects the business environment in various ways. Investors who completely ignore the culture do so at their own peril, as being successful in Myanmar requires an intimate understanding of the culture.
The Myanmar Investment Guide explains the culture’s affects on business and helps you navigate etiquette and cultural norms. If you’re new to the country, understanding how to be polite and courteous is essential. Reading the Myanmar Investment Gudie will help you to build professional relationships, and will ensure that you don’t commit cultural faux pas.
Clear and easy to read information
I’ve tried hard to make the information in the Myanmar investment guide clear and easy-to-understand. I know that investors to Myanmar come from a wide range of backgrounds and I’ve made accommodations for that. The Myanmar investment guide is not an academic book or technical manual – it is a practical guide written by a businessman for other businessmen.
The guide is written in an informal but professional style that tries to anticipate the questions of international investors. It is broken down into logical sections according to the needs of the reader. Because it is a digital guide, it’s easy for the reader to search for specific information and bookmark areas that are especially relevant.

PDF files can be read on Mac and Windows computers and many phones and mobile devices. You don’t need an ereader to read the Myanmar Investment Guide in .pdf format.
