Myanmar has undergone significant political and economic change since the country’s civilian government took control in 2010 under the leadership of President Thein Sein. Foreign direct investment is at record levels in Myanmar, and investment is expected to soar into the coming year. New economic opportunities, however, pose an inherent risk, which includes the potential for corruption.
Michael Ramirez, a consultant in Tilleke & Gibbins’ Myanmar practice, addresses these issues and more in the Myanmar chapter of The Asia-Pacific Investigations Review 2016 (1st Edition), a guide to the important issues in internal and government investigations across the Asia-Pacific, published by Global Investigations Review.
In particular, the Myanmar chapter covers anti-corruption compliance, as well as private corruption, enforcement mechanisms, anti-corruption laws, and the impact of overseas anti-corruption laws in Myanmar.
