With the Government prioritising infrastructure development in support of the country’s burgeoning economic growth, the infrastructure construction in Myanmar is expected to achieve its fastest growth from the period 2012 to 2016.”

At the same time, a sharp rise in foreign direct investment has seen a big growth in demand for new o­ffice spaces as well as housing for expatriates. There are many growth opportunities in Myanmar’s building and construction sector and BuildTech Yangon is proud to be part of this growth.”
