Economic Outlook Discussions

The first Quarterly Economic Outlook Discussion for 2020 took place on Tuesday, March 03rd, 2020.

The subject of the Discussion was: “State of Myanmar’s Economy 2020 – Opportunities and Challenges”

In recognition of the challenges associated with the outbreak of the Wuhan CoronaVirus outbreak in Mainland China (now officially designated COVID-19 by WHO) the Discussion exclusively focused on the Economic impacts of these events on Myanmar’s economy and potential economic response considerations.

We are extremely grateful to Dr. Zaw Oo, Executive Director of the Centre for Economic and Social Development for valuable insights and perspectives.

An Executive Summary of this Discussion is now available.
