The urbanisation of Myanmar is increasing rapidly, with cities flourishing across the country at a fast rate. The population in Yangon is expected to continue to increase by at least 1-2 million residents within the next 20 years, and Myanmar's population as a whole is urbanising.

The Chamber will launch this topical series on 4 October at the Tourist Burma Building, with presentations from Surbana Jurong and PwC, giving an overview of city planning and how the development of cities can contribute to the political and economic stability of Myanmar.

Dates of each event will be published shortly after the launch.
