Capacity development for private sector development
As a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Myanmar is planning a comprehensive modernisation of its economy. An existing lack of entrepreneurial skills is a major constraint for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to adapt themselves in regard to the economic opening. Since 90% of Myanmar companies are SMEs, substantial potentials remain unexploited. There is still a shortage of competences and instruments for promoting sustainable private sector development in the country, especially in terms of SMEs, in the public and private sector.
