The Myanmar Business Survey (MBS) was the first-ever nation-wide survey on business. It aimed to capture a comprehensive picture of the current business activities and enabling environments in Myanmar.
To address the lack of available data and information on businesses in Myanmar, the OECD and UNESCAP carried out a business survey jointly with the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (UMFCCI). Other cooperating agencies who have contributed to the Survey on Businesses in Myanmar 2014 include the Government of Japan, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), The Asia Foundation and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The results of the survey provide better information on the situation of Myanmar’s business sector, allowing UMFCCI and other agencies to contribute to the Government of Myanmar’s creation of business-oriented policy frameworks.
