In October 2016, the two houses of parliament in Myanmar passed the new Myanmar Investment Law, which effectively merged the Myanmar Citizens Investment Law (enacted in 2013), which governs investment by locals, and the Foreign Investment Law (enacted in 2012), which governs investment by foreign entities. The law is intended to streamline and improve the efficiency of investment processes for both local and foreign investors. It is widely expected that this law will provide clarity and greater ease of doing business in Myanmar.
