Public consultation on the future investment relationship between the EU and Myanmar

  • Policy field: Investment
  • Target group: All stakeholders
  • Closing Date: Completed - 15/07/2013

Objective of the consultation

The recent political and economic developments in Myanmar have prompted the EU to normalise its overall relations and open a new chapter in its relations with the country. The EU Council Conclusions of 23 April 2012 on Myanmar/Burma set up the principles under which the Council plans to continue its engagement with Myanmar. The Council also recognised the vital contribution the private sector has to make to the development of Myanmar and welcomed European companies exploring trade and investment opportunities, by promoting the practice of the highest standards of integrity and corporate social responsibility and working with the authorities, the private sector and the people of Myanmar to create the best possible regulatory environment.
