“During the last 4 or 5 years, Singapore has been the top investor in Myanmar and thus it is a country with which we have a strong investment relationship. The objectives of the agreement are to fully protect bilateral investments, to avoid obstacles in doing business, to provide more investor rights and to ensure smooth operations. In addition, it aims to avoid damages as a result of the nations’ policies and programs. By signing such an agreement, investments between the two countries can be safely made.” U Aung Naing Oo said at a press conference held at DICA office in Yangon.

After an initial meeting between Myanmar and Singapore on August 7-8, the second meeting is scheduled to be held in early October, he said.

“We agreed with Singapore to finalise the discussions by the end of 2017,” he added.

Yearly permitted investments by Singapore in Myanmar are US$ 418 million in 2012-13, US$ 2.3 billion in 2013-14, US$ 4.3 billion in 2014-15, US$ 4.25 billion in 2015-16, US$ 1.83 billion in 2016-17 and US$ 1.05 billion in 2017-18 (up to July).

Meanwhile, similar agreements are under way between Myanmar and the EU as well as Hong Kong.

“Negotiations with EU have been completed. EU is now making internal discussions with the negotiated outcomes. It is also being discussed within the ministries on the Myanmar side,” U Aung Naing Oo said.

Subsequently, legal experts from each side will negotiate further to include legal opinions and compatibility with existing laws. Finally, we will submit to the Cabinet for approval. After finishing all the procedures in 2017, we expect to be able to sign the agreement with the EU in early 2018.” he said.

Currently, Myanmar has signed similar agreements with China, India, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Israel, Kuwait, Japan and South Korea.

A draft investment promotion and protection agreement has been shared with Bangladesh and Russia but negotiations are still at very early stages. Meanwhile, Myanmar has also signed a trade and investment promotion and incentive agreement with Indonesia.

伊江樹報導8月10日出版的《緬甸之光》報發表了一篇署名文章,對緬甸的投資前景作了樂觀的估計。該文章的大致內容如下:

緬甸位在經濟發展最快的東南亞地區及世界兩大經濟強國之間,交通樞紐地位的優勢十分明顯。而且自然資源、人力資源都非常豐富。目前人口比例中,能從事勞動生產的人口占了絕大多數。這些都是吸引外國投資者的良好條件。
在前任政府的最後一個財政年度2015—2016年時,進入緬甸的外資金額達到94.8億美元。 2016—2017財政年度時則由於政府更迭,一些政策有待改革整頓,故進入的外資金額有所降

據商務部數據顯示,服裝出口總額超過3.8億美元,直到今年6月份,比去年增加1億美元。去年同期出口額超過2.78億美元。上個財政年度裡,約33%的出口到日本,德國為25%,南韓為25%,美國為2.4%,中國為2.4%。今年出口歐盟有所增加,雖然美國給予緬甸一般的優惠計劃,但並不影響服裝出口。緬甸服裝協會表示,正在談判最惠國待遇(MFN)地位和減稅。協會主席Myint Soe說,我們呼籲政府力求確保服裝業的最惠國待遇。我們希望稅收低於5%。
