Myanmar is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia and is undergoing a profound transformation, emerging from more than 50 years of military rule, centralized control, and internal conflict. Multilateral and bilateral development agencies, UN and international NGOs are increasingly active in Myanmar, working in humanitarian response and longer-term development in a multitude of sectors, including the environment, health, education, livelihoods, advocacy, and civil society capacity building. McKinsey forecasts that the economy could more than quadruple to reach $200bn by 2030.
