Alexandria, Virginia (Thursday July 7, 2016) — ENODO Global releases Social Risk analysis for Kachin State, Myanmar

“Myanmar’s transition to a democratic society creates significant political, economic, and security challenges for investors.”

After six decades of conflict, Myanmar is moving from war to peace; from a closed to free market economy; and from a tightly controlled authoritarian government to democracy. The rise to power of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy (NLD) reinforces hope for progress, but also raises high and at times unrealistic expectations for development. Rapid changes to the political system have not yet materialized in Myanmar’s economic and social landscapes. Meanwhile, the military has guaranteed itself enough decision-making power to safeguard it interests and act if chaos arises. Polarizing social tensions, historic ethnic grievances, and competition for resources dominate Myanmar society and present the greatest risks for multinational corporations seeking investment.
