Business Monitor has just published a brand new special Report Cambodia, Laos, And Myanmar: Opportunities In Hidden Markets, identifying the economic, political and key sector opportunities within the relatively hidden markets of Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. Specifically addressed are growth opportunities in sectors such as infrastructure, agribusiness, banking, oil and gas, mining, tourism and garments and textiles.
Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar will offer substantial opportunities for investors over the coming decade, as their economies grow rapidly and become more integrated with the world economy. These three countries remain tiny relative to the global, or even the regional economy, but with corporates and investors increasingly looking to fast-growing frontier markets for growth, they will present promising opportunities across a wide array of sectors including mining, oil and gas, banking, textiles, tourism, and agribusiness. We elaborate on these in this special Report.
Key topics evaluated in the Report include:
- What are the demographic trends for these economies?
- What are the long-term growth drivers of these three economies?
- Will the political outlook remain stable given the large socio-economic transformations ahead?
- How will respective governments accommodate the growing demands made by a wealthier and more reform-minded population?
- What sectors will provide the best opportunities for growth and investment?
Snapshot of the Report:
‘…these economies account for only 0.4% of regional, and 0.1% of global GDP, respectively. This share will almost double to 0.2% of global GDP by 2024, which suggests that CLM will be among the fastest growing economies over the next decade. Indeed, we forecast real GDP expansion for these three countries to average between 6% and 7% over the next ten years, placing them at the top end of our growth projections compared to their regional peers. Moreover, GDP per capita will more than double to US$4,180 in Laos, US$2,790 in Myanmar, and US$2,052 in Cambodia. To put this into context, per capita GDP in Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines stood at US$5,780, US$3,560 and US$2,720, respectively in 2013.’
Business Monitor addresses the long-term economic outlooks for these three countries. The Report also considers the political trajectory of the three countries. All of them have some form of de facto or de jure one-party rule, which is often positive for political continuity and policy certainty, but raises questions over the inclusiveness of the political process, as well as the risks to foreign investors of political upheaval. Furthermore, those taking the Report also receive an in-depth look at the opportunities and challenges in some of the most important sectors of the economy.
The Report draws upon Business Monitor’s expertise to provide maximum integration of country risk and industry analysis with integrated, forward looking, and independent views. It benefits from 30 years of experience to critically evaluate the economic and commercial opportunities in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar, helping to assess the role it could play in a company’s growth strategy for 2014 and beyond.
