Myanmar is now becoming one of the world's most sought-after countries after its democracy started blossoming, signaling that it is ready to open up and woo foreign investors. The IMF and ADB have projected Myanmar's real growth for 2012-13 as 6 %. Myanmar's agricultural sector, the mainstay of the economy and the engine for rapid new growth, has huge potential waiting to be tapped.

In the 1960s, Myanmar was the world's largest exporter of rice. With exceptional efforts by the government, the rice industry and foreign investors & experts, Myanmar is set to return to its pre-eminence in the world rice and agricultural markets.

Myanmar Rice Industry Association (MRIA) has set an export target of one million tonnes for the 2012-13 financial year as the industry begins to invest money into farms for the first time in years. Myanmar exported about 850,000 tonnes of rice in the 2011-12 fiscal year.

Under Myanmar's new investment law, the most attractive in the region, foreign investors will be granted a five-year tax exemption and land leases of up to 50 years. It will include an eight year tax exemption if projects are profitable for the country.

Efforts are also underway to boost international business confidence in the kyat - the Myanmese currency - in consultation with the International Monetary Fund, more insurance licenses will be given to the private sector, and the banking & financial sector set for further openings and reform.

There are plenty of opportunities for doing business in Myanmar. Do not missed out on the action! Find out more at the inaugural Global Summit, "Into Myanmar: Agri Trade, Investments & Infrastructure 2012" from 25 -26 July 2012 in Yangon, Myanmar.
