Myanmar: Energy and Geopolitics
Myanmar is Southeast Asia’s newest democracy and has intrigued foreign investors as it develops and electrifies. Join Murray Hiebert (Senior Adviser and Deputy Director for the Southeast Asia Program, CSIS) and Rachel Posner Ross (Director of Partnerships for Energy Policy and Investment, Allotrope Partners, and Adjunct Fellow for the Energy & National Security Program, CSIS) as they evaluate the investment climate and energy landscape of Myanmar. Jane Nakano (Senior Fellow of the CSIS Energy and National Security Program) moderates the discussion of Myanmar’s political stability, the country’s readiness for foreign investment, regional energy security, the electrification progress, and opportunities for U.S.-Myanmar cooperation in the energy sector.
