INCLUSIVE APPROACHMyanmar has been steadily implementing key reforms and initiatives for overall national socio-economic development. These initiatives implemented at the national level also contribute to states/regions development. In line with the recent decentralisation efforts of Myanmar, there is a confirmed engagement to enable states/regions institutions and private partners to lead economic development, and create a level playing field in terms of economic opportunities. In this context, TIP balances between national and state/regional interventions. While involving regional representatives to participate in the design of national trade and investment strategies, it will also implement activities in selected states/regions.
