Market Outlook

Economic activity was slower in the first six months after the new government took office, as state counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi acknowledged in mid-October. However, a new investment law aimed at enhancing the role of small businesses in the economy was announced at the same meeting. A recent IMF delegation highlighted that the authorities are making progress but that macroeconomic imbalances, such as a growing fiscal deficit and high inflation, persist.
