Hydropower in Myanmar: Sector analysis and related legal reforms

The momentous transformation of Myanmar’s political and economic landscape, which began in 2010, has created many investment opportunities, particularly in the hydropower sector.

Rapid economic growth is being experienced across nearly every sector, with a significant focus on energy and infrastructure.
