Spire holds Myanmar Seminar for Japanese Clients 

Local research and consulting firm Spire Research and Consulting conducted a breakfast seminar for its clients entitled “Myanmar – Seizing the Opportunities Amidst the Pitfalls” (ミャンマ ー セミナ ー 乗り越えるべき困難と市場機会の捉え方). Conducted in both English and Japanese, the event was tailored specifically for Spire’s Japanese clients.

In his opening address at the seminar, Leon Perera, Chief Executive Officer of Spire Research and Consulting introduced a recent research study done in Myanmar for Japanese companies. He highlighted the opportunities and risks in infrastructure, business services, healthcare, labor-intensive manufacturing and consumer goods, as well as the opportunities that stemmed from the rapid growth of the tourism industry and the entry of foreign capital.

Keynote speaker, Genevieve Koh, Assistant Manager, Client Service of Spire Research and Consulting brought to light the current business conditions in Myanmar and the appropriate business strategies for companies seeking export or investment opportunities. During her talk, she noted that low-risk industries to enter into included consumer goods, food processing, tourism and healthcare pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, given the current infrastructural risks for companies in the oil and gas business, only those with strong emerging market experience and big financial resources would be able to benefit from first-mover advantage.

The talk was followed by a panel discussion, during which participants were able to interact with the speakers. In particular, questions about prospects for the liberalization of employment rules in Myanmar were raised. 

The seminar also served to formally introduce Miyuki Morozumi, Japanese Client Service Manager at Spire Research and Consulting, whose role was to build a bridge between Spire and its Japanese clients.
