New Report Warns of Investment Risks in Burma
27 June 2013
Despite growing interest in Burma as a new economic frontier, the country continues to present significant risks to investors, according to a new report by global risk mitigation and response firm Kroll Advisory Solutions. The report, Emerging Markets Watch, lists five key challenges that would-be investors should be wary of if they are considering entering the Burmese market: the military’s hold on power, ongoing ethnic tensions, rampant corruption, unresolved land rights issues, and safety and security. Richard Dailly, Kroll Advisory Solutions’ managing director for South and Southeast Asia, cited many other positive developments in Burma, including an improved political and economic environment, but warned that many issues have yet to be adequately addressed.
