CMT’s 2nd MRES, being held in Yangon from the 30 Sep-01 Oct, 2013, hones in on pivotal issues, critical for investing in Myanmar’s real estate development and property sector.

Myanmar real estate sector is booming as investors respond positively to the country’s economic and political reforms. Burgeoning demand and new opportunities are attracting investments from around the world. The extent of this can be judged by the fact that Yangon enjoys the highest property prices in Southeast Asia. The explosion in tourism is also leading to acute shortage of hotels, residential buildings and mixed-use projects. Apart from new projects, old and existing properties are being refurbished and repositioned for generating incremental revenue.

New at this year’s edition is the spotlight on infrastructure developments, incentives for investments in special economic zones like Thilawa & Myothar Industrial Zone Park, the landscape of hotels and resorts in key tourist attractions like Mandalay – plus discussions on financing & commercial terms including guidelines on land ownership, and structuring joint venture partnership.
