Today the Farnesina hosts a Country Presentation dedicated to the cooperation and investment opportunities offered by the Union of Myanmar, one of Asia’s most promising markets for the growth and expansion perspectives of foreign companies.
The lifting of American sanctions, the passing of a new law on investments and a policy fostering the attraction of foreign capital are some of the signs of the transformation process ongoing in the Country and of the new business climate. These initiatives, compounded with its great wealth of raw materials and its
geographic position in a strategic area such as that of Southeast Asia, turn Myanmar into a Country with a great potential of also attracting Italian companies.
The event, organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation with the support of the Italian Embassy in Yangon, in partnership with the Ministry for Economic Development, the ICE-Agenzia for the Internationalisation and Promotion of Italian Companies Abroad and UNIDO ITPO Italy, will open with remarks by Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs Benedetto Della Vedova, by the Undersecretary for Economic Development, Ivan Scalfarotto and by Myanmar’s Union Minister for Commerce, Than Myint.
The event will follow with a technical session dedicated to explore the business opportunities in the infrastructure, energy and machinery sectors (with a special focus on the agro-food, textile and food processing industries), envisaging targeted contributions by representatives of Myanmar and of Italy aimed at sharing approaches and procedures with a view to putting in place successful operations in the Country.
The meeting will be moderated by Vincenzo De Luca, the Director General for Cultural and Economic Promotion and Innovation, and close with remarks by Italian Ambassador to Myanmar, Giorgio Aliberti.
The afternoon programme will be dedicated to B2B meetings involving more than 25 Burmese companies which will engage with Italian companies in the more than 200 meetings scheduled.
