Multi-dimensional Review of Myanmar

Volume 2. In-depth Analysis and Recommendations

image of Multi-dimensional Review of Myanmar

Building on an initial assessment of constraints to development in Myanmar (Volume 1), this second volume provides analysis and policy recommendations in three key areas: structural transformation, education and skills, and financing development. It finds that Myanmar faces a crucial few years to shape growth towards a higher, more sustainable and equitable trajectory. To succeed, it will require a transformation of the economy from an agrarian base reliant on small-scale agriculture at present towards a broad range of modern activities. Building up the right skills in the workforce will be essential to support this structural transformation. Myanmar’s transformation will also depend upon how effectively the country can mobilise and allocate the financial resources needed to support its development, which could amount to as much as an additional 5-10% of GDP on average over the next two decades.

Foreword

OECD Development Centre

In 2013 the OECD launched the first Multi-dimensional Country Review (MDCR), a new series that looks at economic development along the lines of inclusive growth, i.e. growth that is also equitable and sustainable and that improves the overall well-being of citizens. The series aims to identify key constraints to broad-based development, and to formulate appropriate policy recommendations to address these constraints, including sectoral as well as cross-cutting issues.
