The first section examines the context for agricultural investment. The second section provides an overview of Myanmar’s investment policy in agriculture, focusing particularly on the land tenure system, the regime for foreign direct investment and the tax incentives offered to agricultural investors. The third section identifies key challenges to promote responsible investment in agriculture that can effectively contribute to sustainable economic and social development. The last section examines specific sectoral policies that can encourage investment in agriculture, namely financial sector development, trade, access to inputs, infrastructure development, human resource development and research.
