New Myanmar



  • A bi-weekly digest analyzing key developments in Myanmar’s transition
  • Designed for busy decision-makers
  • Community: Subscribers are invited to join a monthly breakfast discussion in Yangon. Occasional roundtables will also be held for subscribers in Singapore and Bangkok


 New Myanmar is a bi-weekly report providing coverage and in-depth analysis of developments in Myanmar’s transition from military rule and international isolation. The report, delivered to your inbox on Friday afternoons, helps readers better understand the complex process affecting the country’s politics, business and investment climates, its relations with its neighbors and the West, efforts to resolve longstanding ethnic conflicts, and its human rights challenges.

New Myanmar is prepared by our country experts at the Myanmar office of Vriens & Partners, a Singapore-based corporate advisory firm specializing in political risk analysis, government affairs and public policy in Southeast Asia.

The report, now in its fourth year, is based on daily monitoring of a wide range of domestic media reports supplemented and deepened by the team’s exchanges with government and business leaders in Yangon, Naypyitaw, and the region.

Subscribers are invited to participate in a monthly breakfast meeting in Yangon with our Myanmar team, including managing director Nyantha Maw Lin and other political and business analysts. From time to time, we will also schedule roundtable meetings for subscribers in Singapore and Bangkok. Subscribers will be informed each month of the date and time. Subscribers may share New Myanmar with up to 10 members of their team.
