The results of a Danish founded survey of enterprises in the manufacturing sector in Myanmar has been presented and discussed at a meeting.
Chargé d’Affaires from the Danish embassy in Myanmar attended a presentation and discussion about the survey “Myanmar Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Survey 2017” on 28 August.
The survey is the first national survey focusing exclusively on manufacturing enterprises and their employees in Myanmar. It is founded by Denmark and carried out by Central Statistical Organization in collaboration with UNU-WIDER and University of Copenhagen.
The report reveals the need for a radical change in industrial, financial, and educational policies for increasing economic growth and includes several suggestions on how to do so.
Among others, it suggests that support for better working conditions, education, and employee training should become a key part of policies for improving enterprise performance. Also, the rapport suggest to continue the expansion of social security, public health insurance, and pension programmes, as well as the enforcement of the minimum wage regulation.
