Event Details

The Novel Coronavirus has already imposed disruptions on global trade and Myanmar has seen impacts on industries like tourism, manufacturing and the border trade supply chain. With uncertainty about the extent to which the global economy may suffer, how has Myanmar's economy been affected by the corona outbreak? How should businesses in Myanmar gauge the impact? Can Myanmar make the most of the situation due to its apparent status of having no infections detected?

Join us for a chat with Yangon-based Hans Anand Beck, World Bank's Lead Country Economist to Myanmar; Cyrus Pun, CEO of Memories Group; and Thompson Chau, digital editor and deputy business editor of The Myanmar Times, to gain a better understanding of the situation.

Date: 11 March 2020

Time: 9:00 - 10:00 am

Venue: Hintha Business Centres, Sule Square
