Myanmar is a country rich with natural resources. In recent years, the country has also emerged as a natural gas exporter. Since 2011, the government has embarked on an ambitious economic reform, which these reforms are paying off. With a preliminary population figure of 51.4 million from the national census conducted, Myanmar's economy has grown by 7.3% in FY2012/13 driven mainly by construction, manufacturing, and services.

As per World Bank's projection, the economy is projected to expand further by 8.5% in FY2014/15. The outlook for Myanmar is positive, as the country continues to open up to foreign investments.

Knowing the importance of the growing market, RHB Banking Group has set up a Representative Office in Myanmar.
