On the 18th of November, the Regional Trade Committee will be meeting. The theme of the meeting will be “The Myanmar Elections: Looking Ahead”.
“A watershed moment is looming in Myanmar. Historic elections in November 2015 will put an end to constitutional rule by the military. Parliament will likely be dominated by opposition parties and a coalition government is expected to be formed. Consequences for business will be substantial but are challenging to predict. Will the formidable reform process started in 2011 continue or will the elections thwart further economic progress?”
This meeting will feature a presentation by Mr. Romain Caillaud, Senior Director in the Global Risk and Investigations practice of FTI Consulting, Singapore, and Mr. Alexander Bohusch, General Manager at Luther LLP Yangon.
The presentations will embrace the following points:
– Analysis of the poll results
– Outlook and next steps (international reactions and domestic negotiations)
– Expectations in terms of trade liberalization

The presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion with our members.
