Updates on the designation of development zones

Notification 10/2017 date 22 February 2017

Further to the promulgation of the Myanmar Investment Law, the Myanmar Investment Commission (“MIC”) issued the above notice which sets out the respective regions as Zone 1 (less developed regions), Zone 2 (moderately developed zones) and Zone 3 (developed zones).


Please find the unofficial English version of the above on the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration’s website.


This above notification is one of the two key items that the MIC needs to finalise in order for new investments to be approved under the new Myanmar Investment Law. The other part which is the Myanmar Investment Rules is currently available as a draft.
