Project: Midterm evaluation of the Myanmar Trade Development Programme and formulation of Myanmar National component of ARISE Plus
International Economics, through its CEO as team leader, is assisting the EU Delegation in Myanmar to conduct the identification and formulation of the Myanmar National component of the ARISE Plus Programme under MIP Asia 2014-2020.
The project aims to contribute to the enhancement of inclusive economic growth in Myanmar by enabling the country to take advantage of its reintegration into the world trading system including ASEAN, and the opportunities for trade and investment, while the specific objective is – in both the public and private sector – to improve the capacities for developing and implementing trade policy initiatives.
The expected results of the programme as a whole are:
(i) the enhancement of the capacities of private and public actors, in trade policy analysis, formulation and implementation,
(ii) the swift movement of legitimate trade in goods is facilitated,
(iii) the insurance that Myanmar’s sanitary and phytosanitary standards (SPS) comply with SPS Agreement and meet EU requirements in selected sectors, and
(iv) the development of the national quality infrastructure aimed at reducing barriers to international trade.
