Emerging from decades of economic and political isolation, Myanmar is striving for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. 

The country has strong potential for broad economic expansion, possessing abundant natural resources, a strategic location at the crossroads of Asia, a young population, and a sizable market with wide-ranging investment opportunities

Stephen P. Groff, ADB Vice-President for East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific, recently met Myanmar’s leadership and key finance and infrastructure ministers in Nay Pyi Taw to discuss how ADB can support the country in the years ahead and to finalize the new Country Partnership Strategy that will guide the ADB-Myanmar relationship.
