Event Summary

We are pleased to invite you to a breakfast seminar focusing upon the impact of US and EU policy on investment strategy in Myanmar.

Tom Platts and Ben Hickson of Stephenson Harwood in Yangon will join Erin Murphy, Founder of the Myanmar-centric business advisory firm, Inle Advisory Group, to discuss:
  • The latest views in Washington and in Europe on investment and donor activity in Myanmar and future policy actions.
  • The McCain-Cardin “Burma Human Rights and Freedom Act”, as well as other efforts by the US Departments of State, Commerce, and Treasury related to Myanmar and its impact on current and future investment in the country.
  • How the UK and the EU may adjust its policy, including the potential for a re-imposition of sanctions, in light of the crisis in Rakhine State and how this may impact UK and EU businesses and investors.

Kindly note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

After the event, the speakers are delighted to offer one-to-one meetings with anyone interested in any of the issues raised/to be raised. If you would like to arrange a meeting, we would be grateful if you could let us know in advance by contacting or in the firm's Yangon office at Junction City - next door to the BritCham office.

This session is part of a series organised by international law firm, Stephenson Harwood who have been advising on Myanmar matters for many years. A similar session will be taking place in Singapore on Mar 9, 2018 with future sessions in Bangkok, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
