Even readers who know little about Myanmar – sometimes still known as Burma, but not in this report – will find a lot of interesting material in this analysis from the World Economic Forum. It details how a nation develops a new energy policy to provide power for a growing domestic economy, brings electricity to a rural majority that lacks it, and establishes sustainable, long-range practices. Myanmar’s energy journey is a study in problem solving and negotiation. Policy makers seeking to strengthen their jurisdictions’ energy policies and practices will be able to learn worthy lessons from this paper. getAbstract recommends it to energy industry insiders and investors, public administrators and anyone interested in the future of this emerging – and surprising – Southeast Asian nation.
In this summary, you will learn
- What issues face Myanmar’s current “energy architecture,”
- How the country plans to develop its energy resources, and
- What factors and complications will shape its transformation to a more sustainable energy framework.
