Myanmar enacts new foreign investment law


14 November 2012

On 2 November 2012, President of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, U Thein Sein, signed into law the much anticipated Foreign Investment Law (2012, Union Parliament Law No. 21) (New Foreign Investment Law) in a move widely regarded as a positive step in the government’s plans for economic expansion.
